Abstract

Wanneer Robin 21½ jaar oud is, bemerkt zijn moeder een achterstand in zijn spraak, taal en motoriek. Tevens vertoont Robin in zichzelf gekeerd gedrag. Via integrale vroeghulp wordt hij voor nadere diagnostiek en ontwikkelingsstimulering aangemeld bij een kindercentrum. Hier blijkt dat hij een forse ontwikkelingsachterstand heeft. Hij spreekt slechts enkele woordjes en zijn spel vertoont ernstige beperkingen. Het contact met andere kinderen verloopt zeer moeizaam en volgens zijn moeder is Robin bang voor hen. Hij heeft veel moeite met veranderingen en een sterke behoefte aan duidelijkheid en structuur. Robin gilt of gooit met spullen wanneer hij boos is of niet begrepen wordt.Wanneer later in dat jaar psychiatrisch onderzoek wordt uitgevoerd, blijkt dat er bij Robin sprake is van een autismespectrumstoornis (ASS).
