I think she goes back and forth....we are not close at all, so don't ever discuss things like this. So this is why I am e-mailing the links to my mom, and she can see how sis feels about them, if she wants to pursue it. They have done some very basic evaluation years ago which led to him being placed in some kind of special preschool...again, I don't know too many details. I believe what my mom told me was what the evaluators had to say was "no, he's not autistic" but my mom did not believe that the evaluation had been thorough, or checked to see if even if he wasn't classically (if that is possible) autistic, did he fall anywhere on the spectrum? Nor did it have anything to do with sensory issues, etc.
So neither my mom nor I are going to force her or coerce her into doing anything, but want to have info available for her should she choose to use it. She tends to have a passive personality, but has expressed concern/unhappiness with her son's behavior and issues, so where as she may not seek out the info, if it was available she just may use it.
Thanks for your suggestion about the group...I will have my mom look into that a little more.
