My nephew is going to be 5 next month. He doesn't say a single word. He is still in diapers and he shows no emotion. He still chews on everything. Everyone in the family says he has autism...everyone except his parents. They say his pediatrician says its normal. They were supposed to see a specialist over a year ago and never went. My fear is they are just going to try and throw him in a normal kindergarten class and he is going to have such a hard time. He needed to be getting help two years ago and I feel its too late. It seems as if they don't want to accept that there is something wrong with their child.
