It is hard to say ..: You did not provide enough clinical information. Does this happen in all environments or does he save these behaviors for you specifically. Does he exhibit periods of time where he is engaged in activities with other children: does he understand the language you use with him, does he have a range of emotions: happy, sad, etc. You should discuss these questions with your Pediatric Specialist- KB
