Oliver, little boy, (7), has been different to his older siblings since birth.
As a toddler, always climbing, exhausting to look after.
Now :-
Very short attention span, always asking for this and that.
Rolls his eyes a lot.
Always c?eating his throat, spitting or spitting stuff out of his mouth.
Sensitive to smells, tastes, and feeling, very sensual.
Makes inappropriate actions, sexually, rubbing himself on toys, furniture, anything.
Hyper active, gets very angry, very cheeky, a short fuse.
No fear, not bothered about danger.
Can be very shy, and lack confidence, other times, overly confident with adult relatives.
His mother is exhausted, and emotionally drained.
No help from the GP or the school.
Very intelligent. Gold at maths and can read anything.
School recognise his intelligence, and lack of confidence.
Always top or near top of his class.

Any ideas? Where can his parents turn for help?

Exhausting, but he is so full of love and hugs, that it is so perplexing.
Autism is a hugely wide-ranging spectrum. It sounds as if your grandson is somewhere on the higher-functioning scale. Persistence with educational establishments is your only way forward - difficult at the moment.
My neighbour has 2 sons, both are autistic; one is fine, shy, a bit withdrawn and cautious but pleasant and willing to interact with us. The younger is much deeper in the spectrum; cannot stand sudden noises or any changes (his screams and tantrums disturb our life and his dad escapes as often as possible) but he is fixated on numbers and I can usually get on terms by holding up fingers and asking him to add, multiply and divide.

Last year the best reader in Yr. 7 (where I helped with literacy) was autistic - I sought out poems, bits of Shakespeare for him.

School has to be the first point of call. You say they are no help. Well, it is a tough time for them so try again. If still no joy - demand to see an Ed. Psych.. It may take some time, but keep at it, please.

Cheers JD.
I had to get thing 2 help without the assistance of our GP. Parent partnership will tell your grandson’s parents the best way to go about things in their area.
