What type of medical condition can cause a young person to forget easily, have difficulty in thinking ability, unable to learn new things quickly,and struggle to put thoughts into words easily?
Extreme and/or prolonged stress might be one thing, although struggling to put thoughts into words easily may/may not be part of what can happen with stress (I think it may depend on how young the child is). Of course, if the child/young person is feeling intimidated AND is under stress, I'm guessing that could could create problems with putting thoughts into words. (I was a shy kid, super-verbal, and had times when I'd feel nervous with some intmidating adults and have trouble saying what I wanted to say.)
It's never safe to make guesses about that kind of thing, though, because the person could have any number of conditions that would cause something like that. A lot of kids forget easily, and those who don't really forget often say they do.
The best thing would be to have the child looked at by a medical practitioner. You can never be too careful.
He could take some drugs? Some drugs, such as marijuana and hashish, if taken continuous, can be a cause of trouble you describe.
