If you’re worried about your son, then it would be wise to consult a professional. They would be in the best position to help. They will conduct a thorough psychosocial evaluation and determine if a diagnosis is warranted. That’s a better strategy than “just letting it be.” You need to know the truth so that you can take the appropriate action.
You might try asking his pediatrician for a referral to a specialist in autistic spectrum disorders. You can also call the one 800 number on the back of your insurance card. Also, there are many resources on the Internet that can help you to find a specialist in your community. The “find help” tab, at the top of this page, is a good place to begin your search. I hope this helps. Please take care.
