Does he have the following problems?
Thank you. Can you give me the numbers you mentioned fit for him?
To meet ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) criteria, your child must have problems across multiple situations with 1, 2, 3 and your child must experience at least two of these (4, 5, 6, 7). Although you child doesn't meet ASD criteria, he is borderline close to ASD. You should take him to the specialist to have him evaluated. The goal of treatment is to maximize ASD child's ability to function by reducing ASD symptoms and supporting development and learning.
