I have a 5 year old boy. He's had no diagnosis for ASD, just a gut feeling of mine since he was a newborn. Anyway, since a couple of months ago my 5 year old asks the same question multiple times a day, every day "how many more days till my birthday?" It's in November. So he then asks "is that 5 days?" Or he'll hold his hands up and ask is it this long till my birthday?" He then starts to get upset if he can't understand. Another question he's repeating but not as much is "when do we go on holiday?" He'll then ask the two smaller questions exactly the same as with his birthday question.
He's also started making lots of funny little noises over and over again. He's constantly moving around, biting his toenails or sucking on his toes. He has angry outbursts and cries slot-gets distressed when something's missing from his school bag. There's so much I could write. Should I have him assessed? My husband isn't convinced. His teacher says he's just shy. He's average for reading and writing but very good with maths and science based learning.
