From your description it sounds like your child has developmental issues. Normally a comprehensive assessment is necessary to determine the needs and impairments. Good to know that he is independent in many things, but has some ritualistic behavior. He will need some behavior therapy, special education and remedials apart from other things like even medicine. Please consult a child development clinic for assessment and specific therapies. Parents will also benefit from education and training. Regards
