Not sure I'm posting in the right bit of the forum, because I'm new here.
I'm a gran to 2 children and a teacher, but that's not why I'm posting, so I have to be careful when seeking advice.
My hub's sister's grandson is on the autistic spectrum, but it's being denied. In fact, it's the elephant in the room. The school has allegedly tested him and said no, he's not autistic, which was received with an almost, 'see told you so' attitude.
But he displays many of the symptoms of autism, including, monosyllabic speech, extreme food pickiness and regimented regimes (amongst others) and we are desperate to help, as are some other members of the family, as we are not alone in our concerns. But we are fobbed off.
Little boy is very well looked after and lacks nothing.
Should we just mind our own business, or is there some way we can get him some help?
