  • My son has Autism & we started noticing it when he walked everywhere on his tip toes,he didnt start talking until he was 3(he said a few words but nothing major) & he had major temper tantrums.Also he was funny around water...he never liked the feel of it.Hope some of these things help.

  • Each list of signs is a little different, but here is one that also has links to other possible causes for the symptoms. It also has links to more info on autism.

  • the reason that there are multiple symptoms for all cases and all are differnt is because autism doesn't really exist, I am a peds dr, and ALL autism cases are really misdiagnosis for another cause. Stop making excuses for your children not being what you expected
