Is being over jealous over mum talking to others is a normal behaviour for a 6 year old.

My son is now 6. he had delayed language development but is fine now and caught up with peers. he was a very difficult child in terms of tantrums which I put to the fact that he didn't understand what was happening around him which was frustrating. I always felt he was different but couldn't quite put my finger on nothing in particular apart from the delayed speech.recently he started school.sometimes he mixes up with other children and plays well and other times he doesn't want to. I get the ffeeling that he wants to interact with others but doesn't know how. recently he is getting angry when I talk to other adults as I m walking him to school and he keeps wwinging about it saying he doesn't want me to talk to anyone else and I should only talk to him. Do u think he might be on artism spectrum?

I would have a good talk with his teacher and ask her to observe him, then speak to the Senco at the school letting them know about your concerns. If they share them, then I'd ask your GP to refer you to a Developmental Paediatrician who can assess him. I should warn you though that it is a long process, so you have to be patient.
