This is something that I have been concerned about even though it isn't my responsibility. My brother's son has merely been left behind. My brother is in the military and has to frequent cruises that can last up to 5 or 6 months in the ocean. His wife left him and is back in the area. Their son is living with my mother. I don't even think his mother comes by or even calls. My mother doesn't talk much about that. More important... he show some symptoms of Autism. I'm not sure if I spelled it right. My mother is having troubles finding a doctor who will accept the military insurance and get all medical records from his mother. What I'm looking for here is maybe something that can help with his development. What kind of special needs does he have? He doesn't really talk... he will say, "potty, potty, potty" when he has to go, so my mother figured he was ready to start potty training. (he just turned 3) When he wants something, he will take your hand and point to whatever it is he wants. When he is happy he just sort of runs in place and does this punching thing. Sometimes he just stops and clinches really tight. He has this fascination with this string. He will do his running punching thing will hold an end of the string in each hand and watching it. My mother tries not to let him have the string, because he appears to be more aware of his surroundings when he doesn't have it. I really worry about him...and my brother.
