My friend, the Grandmother, said it is none of her business that the child doesn’t talk and she doesn’t feel right getting involved. What do you think? Should Grandmother Get Involved, Georgia
If the child has not muttered a word and is now about to go to school for the first time, this is not normal and it’s obvious that the child is autistic. If this family is going to see any type of change in this child’s behavior, the treatment should have been started right away especially before the child reached 2 years of age. However, many families today are in denial about their autistic children.
I believe if the Grandmother do not intervene in the autistic child healthcare, then this child will never receive what he really needs and will be just another child lost in the system. If she does not intervene she will just be another selfish person because even though the child is not hers, sometimes Grandmothers must act as heads of household and do what is right for the entire family. Shame on her for saying she doesn’t feel right getting involved.
