Autism is primarily an impairment of effective social skills and absent or impaired communication skills.
It is a neurodevelopmental disorder of early childhood.
Occasionally, people with autism have impulsiveness, hyperactivity, and inattention which is what your nephew might have.
I would recommend seeing his doctor to see if you can get him started on medication to help him concentrate and decrease his impulsiveness. Medications such as SSRI or ADHD medications are usually effect.
