Ok,my friend is stressing herself out BADLY ... she thinks 1 of her twins has autism ... she told me he sits there while watching tv,playing,interacting w/ someone he will flap his arms ... and sometimes at the store or even at home he'll have an outburt where he (i cant explain the sound) lets out a groan ( i guess you can say) and he does it for a while and its loud. Any input on this?

He is 8 months

  • If she is very concerned, she should address it with her pediatrician, or call early intervention and have an evaluation.
