    Hi im new to this site and need any advice. I have a son who is nearly four now . He is having trouble talking and toilet training.  He has attended a hearing test today and it has been discovered he has a middle ear problem which is under review.  Since birth Alex has been difficult with difficulty settling and being demanding.  We have made excuses “he's only a baby” or “terrible 2's” but as he is due to start school in September these excuses are running out.  Alex has limited social skills he always appears on the outside of his peers at pre-school.  He has a very volatile temper which is he looses very quickly and for often minor issues.  He is very clingy to his mum.  He sleep walks.  He can be particularly violent to his sister who is 5 punching and kicking her.  He is constantly putting things in his mouth ie., the seat belt in the car or chewing the sofa, he also tried eating money.  Sleep has been an issue he never sleeps though the whole night either waking or sleep walking.  We have just started a new routine which is working well to get him to sleep where he is left with a particular book (it must be the same one each night) and I go back and check on him until he has fallen asleep. Because of his behaviour and constant activity we at first wondered if he might be hyperactive however having researched ASD we are now seeing more links with his behaviours here.  We have a daughter who was no trouble bring up . I know children are all different , but i grew up in a massive family and have never seen anyone like him. I was told to look into ASD as two people who have seen him and have children with ASD said they think he has it ,and now the childrens bladder and bowel nurse has said it to. We want to help him but have no idea the best way to do this . Any advice , tips or even an opinion would be really helpful. If you have a child like him that would be ideal .

    If you think your son may have Autism then I would suggest you take him to your local gp. That was the first thing I did. Whether they agree with you or not, they should refer you to the paedatrician so he can be assessed more thoroughly. If this is not suggested, push for it and tell them why! Good luck 🙂

    Thanks proudmummy for you input i went today to gp and he straight away referred alex to a paedatrician . I told him what he was like and give him things he did and how he acts. He agreed.

    Along with natural source vitamin e – I have suggested that my friend begin giving her son IP6 as well.  I think that IP6 is likely to positively affect every cell in the body.Sharmin
