Question about autism

An_254484 posted:
I have a grandson that is 17 and for sometime I have seen and felt he has symptoms of some form of autism. He has a hard time with eye contact and does have times of uncontrollable anger. Loud noises and some noises in general seem to bother him a lot. When he was young he would line up toys in a straight line which is something I have read in the past. When not aware of anyone looking he will have odd movements. Hard to really explain.

I have also discussed this with my husband and he thinks I am overreacting. I think sometimes men don't want to admit shortcomings in their eyes. I have a gut feeling telling me I am not overreacting. Please any advice would be helpful
