How do you open up the topic of the possibility of having a child with special needs to your relative? I visited my cousin who lives in Batangas and I met my niece whom I feel like has the condition. She's turning 6 this year yet there are some behaviors that I have noticed when I stayed in their house for almost a week. She rarely makes eye contact--not just to me but even to her parents. She is also way to active and also throws tantrums every single time.

Try to politely ask the kid's milestones and start at that. Then ask them if they've notice something peculiar regarding her behavior, but don't overdo it because the goal here is to make the parents open up, not feel threatened with their kid's condition. Just make sure you tell them that you have the best intention and then offer them the option of having the kid checked by a professional.
