Good evening, I am Dr Ruff, thank you for contacting us today

I am sorry to hear of this. Given what you report it would be reasonable to be referred to paediatrics for a more formal assessment of their behaviours and therefore with what you report alone, would be enough to justify this.

You should go back to the GP and request a referral for further assessment of this.
