Can some mummas help.
So I have been extremely concerned about DS's behaviour lately for a few months. It's been getting so bad.
And here we have it. Our special is thinks more ADD/ADHD but I'm not sure I think more sensory/ASD Marce I'm too Google 😒
Bounces (nearly all day to point I want to throw the lounge out because he won't listen!) his beds on floor because j can't trust an actual bed.
He throws toys across sister face until she bleeds 😳
He pinches his face if he's upset or angry or his arms
Won't hold hands he will just lay on ground so he has go in pram if we go out I tried the strap thing and he seriously lags on ground and it would be like me dragging him I'm not keen.
He's pretty verbal but not very clear I can understand him I guess
Major seperation he won't play at playground etc but fine at childcare?? :/
He plays with poo etc
Won't eat food still still loves milk
Finally sleeps 7-7 but co sleep
I'm really at wits end we have been referred to another specialist . my little boy can be so loving and caring but dd just cries and says DS hurts me mummy 😥

I have an ASD son (currently also on watch for ADHD signs) who does some very similar stuff to what you mentioned. There is still a possibility of it being ADHD. They have a large amount of crossover "signs".
My best advice for now is to stay all the way away from Google. Don't look it up at all. Not for now. With behavioural disorder diagnosis, a lot of it comes down to questioning you about stuff you might not have considered before. You don't want to go in there with a preconceived idea of what the answer could/should be as you don't want to subconsciously sway your answers. You need it to be as real and honest as it can be.
Best of luck with your appointments. And if you aren't happy or feel they aren't listening, speak louder. Make them hear you, or find someone else.

How old is he?

He is 2 and a bit but he also has significant medical issue background I have a big post from when he was first born just didn't want to add it to that as we are not sure if it is related to that or not just yet. He has white matter brain damage but we aren't sure if it's that or this blah blah..
Today he through his porridge and milk on his sisters face I'm so stressed!

What kind of specialist are you waiting to see Monnie?
I would certainly be following your instincts that something isn't right and have him seen by a paed.
My DS is on the spectrum, but it wasn't until he was closer to 3 that it became more obvious that things weren't quite 'typical' in terms of behaviour.
Start making notes or even filming some of his challenging behaviours as this will help if you need to explore a diagnosis.
Hang in there, there is hope

My son is 8. He has ASD and ADHD. We knew something was wrong when he would spend hours screaming because something was out of place. My son was diagnosed with ASD at 4 and ADHD at 5. I would suggest seeing a paediatrician. Also maybe see your child health nurse and ask her to do a development assessment. She can then refer you onto the appropriate therapies. Which state are you in?

We saw our normal paed yesterday but he said he wouldn't like to diagnose as he isn't specialised in the field so referred us onto behavioural paedtrician at public hospital but if the wait is too long I'll go private.
I'm so exhausted! 😳he loves the shower of water wasn't so expensive i would let him stand in there all day 😂😂

Who is your paed?

Some things you have mentioned are normal, just a phase.
I hope things improve.
Do,you attend play groups? Maybe he needs other kids around him? Could he be bored... I know kids can get bored very easily.
Maybe try and do different things and see if he likes it. He could feel a little detached with another sibling around.
Try the following if you like....
Lego or blocks
Not sure if you have done these. It's worth a try.
