My husband's aunt had her 5th child a few years ago (he's almost 2.5yrs old now). My husband & I have this strong feeling that her son may be suffering from Autism. Her other children have eccentric & hyper personalities, but this seems different, even though she says he's just being silly. He has yet to start talking (he knows a couple words - yes, no, & baby - but the rest of his communication is soley grunting & yelling "auh" noises), he is also very violent - he hits constantly - people, furniture, walls, the floor, etc. We are very worried for both him as well as his mother (she seems very frustrated even though she brushes it off). I'm wondering if maybe we should tell her of our concern or if we should just let it go? Is there an appropriate way of going about this??
