you need to take your child to a child psychologist and get proper assessment done. if he has autism, start early intervention asap so that the child can be trained and is able to lead a good life.

You need to see a child Psychiatrist first, who will assess your child and then refer you to a Psychologist who will do tests to determine the extent. Based on the results, counseling can then be initiated.
