DS is 3.5 years old. He doesn't seem to understand fully everything that is said to him. His speech isn't clear. He has problems following certain directions, doesn't recognise letters or numbers but can count to 10 and say his ABC's. He hyper focuses on things and talks about them. While he is doing this, he seems to be in his own little world. He can't be redirected or change the subject can't be changed because he doesn't seem to hear when people talk to him until he stops his hyper focusing. Last month our ac stopped working due to a snake getting caught in it. He has been talking almost non stop about acs and what are in things. He also asks why over and over. If you say you don't know, he will ask you why you don't know. It gets very annoying . He rocks from side to side in his bed to go to sleep.
This is a sample of some of the things he does. Could he be autistic?
