Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hello. This is Dr Geyik and I will be assisting you today.
Can I please ask how long he has had this behaviour? Are any other behaviours that are worrying you?
I understand. I agree that some of these symptoms may suggest autism but there could be other causes or just a normal variation.
Autism can only be diagnosed formally by a qualified child psychiatrist in a face to face assessment as his behaviour needs to be fully observed over a period of time.
So, I suggest you contact his GP for the initial assessment and then referral to a specialist for further evaluation.
You are most welcome.
