  • There are diff forms of Autism...some more severe then others. It's best to talk to your doctor..information can be very false and not even updated on the internet. Your Doc can set you up with a specialist to have some testing done, if you suspect it. And remember there is a higher rate of children now a day's that are bouncing back from Autism so please don't think the worst.
    Take Care.

  • hand flapping, sometimes speech delays, meltdowns, food issues, sometimes has issues with texture of food and clothes, The symptoms that the others and I have listed can all occur by the age of 2~3. If you are concerned speak to your pediatrician and they will send you to get a full evaluation on your child. The autism spectrum is wide. There is ppd~nos, aspergers, and a unique range of autism.
