Re: Diagnosing Autism Spectrum Disorder in a toddler in Switzerland?

well actually the doctor said paraphrased that he thinks in our case it's bad parenting but he's not an expert so we should see a psychologist (at least thanks for that). Also, my husband is convinced that I am making an elephant out of a tiny fly. Hence, I am kind of assuming that that's exactly what I will be told in two weeks time
My son is a free spirit and I never taught him to follow hat grown ups say (myself included) just "because I said so" (I myself had and still have a problem with authorities not based on merit by merely on job title). So some of his behavior is due to my own doing, but the pushing with teeth clinched, the difficulty to deal with any strong emotions are similar to my own experience in childhood. When I was 4.5 i killed a kitten because I couldn't cope with it being so nice to me, I couldn't cope with the feeling, with the emotion that overcame me at that moment (I still remember it vividly and I still feel horrible that I did that.
The teeth thing, that he learned from me because it is my own response to how to deal with overwhelming emotions (also in my case it is most of the time positive emotions in particular "love"-type feelings) so he saw me doing it a lot when I would cuddle him or kiss and suddenly feel overwhelmed by the intensity of my feelings - maybe I just taught him something and it's not a similar reaction because he feels the same, but rather a learned thing to 100% - so my hope is that more then anything else someone helps me to untangle this particular issue
Did you had some help about all of this?
