Patient discussion about separation
Q. I have adapted my 6 year old son. He stays separate and alone. I am suspecting him to be having autism? I have adapted my 6 year old son from an orphanage. He was looking great that I could not leave him there. He stays separate and alone, away from his other friends. He cannot make friendship. I have seen that he does not make any eye contact when we talk to him. Initially I thought that he will know me well then he will be ok. But it’s not happening after 3 years since I had brought him from the orphanage. Even he cannot talk well. I am suspecting him to be having autism?
