p*ssed off and some Qs

Thought ya'll would understand, so I pissed off at my little girl's gym teacher.

My little one doesn't do eye contact, respond to her name/ques, and hates strangers touching her, etc., strangers being quantified as anyone other than DH, DS or I.

High level Autism or something else?

Hi phone - First, I want to apologize if this is not the correct forum to post this. But I was not sure where else to start.

I have a brother-in-law with "Problems". I say it that way because the parents have never gotten him tested. He is my wife's brother and she does not want to be around him if at all possible.

Let me give you some examples:
