I am sorry to read of your son's problems. From the little I know of children with OCD, Behavioral Therapy is the best way to go but then I am sure you are discussing this with your son's physician.
I think Lyn gave you some great advice and she understands this disorder.
I support you as I know how difficult this must be for you to see your son going through this. Please keep posting.
I admire you as you are being so proactive on behalf of your son. You are recognizing what he is going through and you may be right, he could well have a very high IQ.
If he does have a high IQ please consider his need for an outlet for his knowledge, skills, insights, problem solving ability and creativity. This will help him channel that knowledge in a meaningfull way.
I have a granddaughter with Autism and she has a high IQ. She can do cirlces around me and she is only 13. However she needs lots of love and reinforcement that she is ok.
Gentle Hugs to you
YOU are doing what a GREAT mom should be doing ..........IMHO
