My 6 y/o son has autism, he is non-verbal, still in diapers, and has problems with fine motor skills. He also has problems with following verbal instructions. There are times when I feel he very intelligent but other times I can't tell. If i tell him to give daddy kisses, he comes to me, but i can tell him to throw something away and he goes to the garbage can. If i ask him to bring me something, he doesn't connect to the object unless he is holding it. i am wondering if maybe there is some mental retardation there. Anyone have a child with Autism and MR and what age did you know?
