Does my 4yr old grandson have autism

Please help, I think my daughter is in denial. My grandson will be 4 in November and still isn't potty trained. Cannot talk in a sentence, sounds like he is talking in a foreign language. He can say quite a few single words, and screams when he doesn't get his way (mostly when he doesn't get a toy that his brother has, lol). He's 95% a happy boy. Acts like he is deaf sometimes when you are talking to him. Cannot tell you his name, how old he is, cannot carry on a conversation at all. Repeats words a lot of the time. Very playful, gets along well with other kids, can play video games. When told to do something 7 out of 10 times he does it. I'm just really concerned because he could start pre k and theres no way he would know whats going on.

Please help a concerned grandmother (aka: meme)

Re: Does my 4yr old grandson have autism

Oh, grandma, I hear your concern and I affirm it! I do think something needs to be investigated. I am sorry that your daughter is in denial, that must be so hard for you to watch.
Although I hope that he will somehow be evaluated before then, I think you can rest assured that when he is signed up for pre k and the teachers meet him, if there is cause for concern they will see the red flags and talk to your daughter.
I understand that your hands are tied, and I am sorry.
