Hi - sounds like a difficult situation for you.
I need to dash again very soon but I just wanted to say don't be afraid of labels (eg ASD). I kind of freaked out a bit when it was first mentioned as a possibility with DS as he had about 3 traits at the time. He got into the public system and since then has had paed reviews every 6 to 9 months to assess if he's on teh spectrum. The closest assessment came out that he was borderline of needing more assessment but he has since started school and doing well there which has basically taken ASD off the table. The reason I say don't be afraid of such labels is because if it turns out he is on the spectrum at least you will have a better idea of how to help him and I think you will also be entitled access to public assistance (DS had about 18 months of public funded speech therapy - fortnightly sessions which helped him a lot).
PM me if you want to swap any ideas/games about assisting speech.
