Hello, my name is Natalie and I have a 4 year old son. I think he may have autism but I'm not sure, he visits a consultant who says he has communication difficulties and is in the process of a SEN application. He started talking about 3 and a half years old, same time he was toilet trained. He copies everything exactly as I say and has no understanding, just repeats what he has heard. He gets obsessed with one type of toy, for example its spiderman now, everything he does/says relates to spiderman. He finds it difficult to make friends and nursery have told me he's 18 months developmentally behind peers. I don't know whether to go back to the doctors and get a second opinion. I just feel down and stressed because I don't know how to manage him. Kind regards, Natalie
