I have a 6 year old son with autism and a 9 year old with aspergers (another form of autism). I noticed by 3 that my sons wouldnt talk, wouldnt make eye contact, would line up his toys, not play with toys or play with none toy items like socks. Sometimes the child will echo what you say and flap or pace in repeditive manner this is called stimming. If you have any more questions please send me a message in my inbox and I will be happy to answer them.
