Does this sound like ASD to you? Couldn't hold head up til 6 mo old,couldn't sit up on own til a year,walked 1st time at 17 mo,is now 5 and a half and has speech pattern of a 15 mo old,still not potty trained,nor is close to it,severe temper tantrums,very clumsy,hits,screams when change in routine,limited eye contact,stomps feet and throws himself when mad,has a GAH sound when speaking for C words,like GAHT for cat,most words are unintelligible.His parents think he has a "speech delay" only.He is in his 3rd year of Early Childhood and the only strides I've seen is in his classroom attentiveness,and use of a visual chart to get his needs known. This is my nephew by the way. My son has classic autism,so I know most of the symptoms,but I'm not sure what to label this behavior as.His parents are in total denial of their son's situation. I don't think he's gotten a diagnosis yet per se.
