In Reply to: How do you mean it's both? If a medical condition is causing the behavior, then it's not psychological... Could you explain your thoughts? thanks posted by Yvonne on September 19, 2000 at 20:39:17:
I was amazed when you wrote about your son saying that people were staring at him - my boy has just started saying this!!!! He is very placid though but I wonder if this could change during puberty - could you tell me about your son a bit more if you don't mind.
I also believe my son was born autistic apparently his brain is normal size but the neurologist believes there was some problem early on in the pregnancy. He is also epileptic and occasionaly hallucinates (although this seems to have stopped recently - thank god!). I would be very interested to hear about your son - there is not much info. about older children/teenagers with autism.
