Hi, Monica,
Thanks for query,
some times with some congenital anomalies some mental retardation is not uncommon,but as you say other way he is ok so this is not the problem with him.
Keep patience,gradually he will have attention for study.
in school with other students he will learn about study,talking,mixing etc and give attention to study.
Try at home to give him some lessons and follow his lessons.
Ok and bye.

Hi- You didnt mention how old he is? you should get an assessment by a Psychiatrist or Psychologist and his social qoutient done. That shows if he is behind in certain areas. Rest- Relax- each child is unique and different.
