Sounds odd, but I had my brother to play w/ until school at age 4 (we are 18 months apart) my younger brother played w/mom until we got back from school (9 &10). My mom insists that being in a daycare @ age 4 was the trigger for his autism where he in one week went from being fluent in his 3rd language & potty trained to bed wetting to diaper use to autistic zombie. The daycare was into spanking & isolation punishment.
Now every time I mention my 18m girl being in a play group, she warns me about this-esp if the other children are delayed or younger- she is making me second guess myself. She is telling me that she sees autistic traits in her. Other than her not speaking much yet (only 25 words) & only being able to understand 2 languages & being obsessive about her teethbrushing I dont see any indication of her being slow or autistic. Is it important for her to be in a playgroup at this age or is it just for me?
