  • Well, I worked with special needs children for the last 5 years before I decided to take a break and be a SAHM. Anyways, you can't really start noticing things until they are 3, maybe as early as 2, but no earlier than 2. Talk to a pediatrician for concerns and educate yourself. That is my best advice.

  • Motor coordination problems. Socialization issues: specifically, the child does not respond in an expected way to things. Extreme noise sensitivity. Obsession with particular subjects, and the desire to talk ONLY about those subjects, ignoring when someone tries to change the subject.
    Those are some of the major symptoms.
