My 6yo grandson has Autism I think. Symptoms and behaviors are there.
Mother is in denial...problem yes but he needs me! She babies him, one-on-one only. sippy-cups, and carries, cuddles and does not treat him as a 6 yo at all. However, when he is at his father's or any of our family, we treat him as a 6yo w/ a concern. We attempt to work w/ it w/o "babying" but at a level we have found that he responds too. She has Primary Care at this time. Dr.has perscribed Adderall for him. Yes, a difference but.....
He is very smart and has an internal clock that can go w/ days not just hrs. but short-term clock reading is not possible YET.
What magic words can my son say that will get court to order assessmet?
