Jericho will be 5 in August and has some quirky behaviors. A few times I have wondered if he may be autistic, but I just pass it by because his dr and teachers haven't mentioned it. Besides I have no RL reference.
These include being obssessed by trains. He chuggs throughout the day even in his sleep sometimes. Takes on train names. Greets people with chuffing.
He won't eat any sauces or foods mixed or touching on the plate. This really never bothered because I went through a period in which I needed all my food served on separate plates, even if they would be eaten as a whole, plus a clean plate for the whole. Example a ham and cheese sandwich required 5 plates. But I got over that.
Anyway we went to look at a place for rent yesterday and the owner, who taught 4th grade for 25 years asked if he is Autistic. Now I am really wondering if he could be.
