I have had my suspicions regarding my grandson being autistic; he started school in September and took months to settle in. He also refused to eat in the dinning hall and usually had lunch in the classroom with his TA.
Recently his teacher has had concerns with his concentration, learning and more recently his disruptive behaviour. The SENCO has suggested he gets assessed for autisim.
I have for many years worked with autistic adults (most have profound autisim), therefore I have experience in this area not with children.
I feel my grandson may have mild autisim; he is affectionate, good eye contact, plays well with children (but finds it difficult to share his toys) he does willingly share information eg if he sees something of interest he will point it out. He has problems with his bowel as he holds it for weeks at a time, he has an obsessed soon with keys and has had since a youn toddler. (He has a major tantrum if he loses the key he went to bed with and will not have a replacement key, it must be the original key)
Does anyone agree that I should have worries
