Autismis a specific condition where children do not communicate at all with adults or children near to or around them.It is much more than just shyness.Autistic children also show repetitive behaviour doing the same thing over and over again.They show little or no interest in their surroundings.Again this is much more than the shyness which you say you experience.Your son has been a bit slow to start talking but he now can talk normally.He seems to communicate normally with you.Potty training is often delayed in little boys but your son has now been potty trained.He may be a bit shy but otherwise does not show any of the symptoms of autism,so please do not worry about him.
