Autistic 10 year old boy...

Hey All,

This is my first time using this message board and I'm hoping you all might be able to help me.
My 10 year old son has Dyspraxia (aka Global development delay) and Autisim - Not all of his traits fit into the Dyspraxia condition.

Today when I picked him up from school his teacher said he looked as if his mind wandered and he was pinching himself on the back of the hand repeatedly - he's never done this before he's usually very placid but does go off in to his own world. It's the hand pinching that's concerning me as thats a new behaviour, as he's nearing puberty what should I expect?

Some days it feels like I have a totally new son to the day before!

Thanks in advance
