Okay, it sounds like there’s no doubt he’s a gifted child. He may have a learning difference too like dyslexia for example and this can make the overexcitabilities seem even more obvious.

Also, it could be straightforward asynchronous development – where parts of the child’s brain develop at a much faster rate than others and some parts seem to lag behind their peers.

You will need someone who understands all this to be able to diagnose him properly. It could be BOTH AS and ADHD AND dyslexia. This would be called a multiple exceptionality. (More than one difference.)

The book you REALLy need is Misdiagnosis and Dual diagnosis of gifted children and adults. And maybe have a word with someone at SENG for some help with where to go next.

Good luck ad keep us posted.
