For the record I am posting anon b/c I have LOTS of family on cafemom, and I don't want my SIL to take offense....
We all just found out that my niece (3) is autistic, and my SIL is refusing any treatment, and just flat out doesn't believe it. All the symptoms are there and you can tell, but my question is...Is there anything that we (aunts uncles grandparents) should know about autistic children?
Like, should we communicate with her a little different? Does she need anything special to help her grow and develop?
I have no experiance and little understanding about autism, anybody have any crash course information?
