New and confused

I hope I don’t offend anyone I apologise now if I do.

My partners got 3 children with his ex partner and the 2 eldest have recently been diagnosed with autism. He’s struggling to cope and I have a 17 month old son with him who doesn’t hold his own bottle or talk apart from row row and it might be normal but I’m worried that my son might have autism to I read stuff online and it scares me feel like I can’t talk to anyone. 

His children in order of gender are:

boy- 7

boy-6

girl-3

boy-17 months 

what’s the likelyhood of our son having autism and where do I go from here?

thanks in advance

  • Hi all my son does eat but only what he wants and he doesn’t eat a lot. I’m not jumping to conclusions of autism I came on here for support and to find out if anyone would help to tell me some signs to look out for. 

    When he plays it’s always on his own when he’s at baby group he never plays with anyone he will give them toys but then he will go off on his own and it’s like that when he plays with his brothers.
