Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
These symptoms are consistent with autism spectrum disorders. He would need psychotherapy sessions to combat this problem.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
