Child extremely good at academics, talks and laughs to himself, has difficulty in controlling thoughts and writing at the same pace. Cause?

hello dr deshmukh i got on student who is 14 . 5 yr old. he talks to himself very often even if he is on his own laughs at inappropriate situation or for no evident reason. gets distracted easily.Gives (or asks) too much information( often gibberish) when one or two sentences will do the work.but is very good with his academics. is a messy eater. from past 2 months is obsessed with neat writing as he is in his boards to the extent that he has stopped writing in the class, takes his friends books home to complete. today when i asked him to write about Olympics.He could tell me a lot(in fact was very well aware about it and seems to be following it very closely)but when it came to writing he could not keep his thoughts n writing on the same pace. if another person reads it , it will surely appear gibberish as half of the things he verbalize but could not put it on looked that his mind was running away on its own n he has to stop writing to focus...... but again it is not ADHD ....though lot of Schizophrenia features seems to match. plz guide

Pediatrician 's  Response

Thank you for your query,
Some children will have Specific Learning Disabilities like in reading, writing or calculation and mathematics. If we don't understand this, then conflicts will occur and the child may develop associated psychiatric problems like depression, anxiety.
They have normal or more intelligence , but may not perform some specific activities which involves the school work.
It is better to refer this child to a Pediatrician for further evaluation of his specific learning disability and to manage the child to overcome his disability.
Hope I have answered your query.
