I know there are several websites that I have read and all have some signs of autism, but I would like personal experiences/observations as how you noticed the beginnings of autism in your child.
My DD is almost 2 & lately I have noticed that she spins around in circles. She starts laughing when she stops & sometimes I just call her name so that she stops & she does & looks at me & does it again. I try to keep her mind distracted by showing her a book/toy so she won't do it again.
Should I be worried that she has autism? What else is there that I should be looking for?
Like I said I know there are websites, but I want personal observations. Thanks.

Keep in mind it can be really different in girls in ways. I was just considered "terminally weird" my entire life. This helped me clinch that it really was autism instead -- http://abcnews.go.com/Nightline/story?id=4177353&page=1Â That and the stuff I have in common (not had as a child, but still HAVE) with the autistic children (both boys between 8-10) of two friends.Â No child should have to live like that, without knowing why.Â I don't want every slightly different kid labeled, no, but I also don't want ANYONE to have to live within the hell I did my entire life.Â
