I've been hearing a lot about autism lately, and Its kind of freaking me out. I have a three year old son, he love being around children and adults. He is just flat out a people person. He was a late talker, but he now talks and makes his needs known. He knows his ABC's, can count, and LOVE music. However when he is excited he does the hand flapping, and sometimes walks on his toes. He is a very social child with excellent eye contact. I just am worried about the hand flapping and toe thing. He also loves wheels. ANy input moms?Answer Question

Why are you worried about the hand flapping? Just because it's a symptom of autism doesn't mean it's exclusive to autism. If there is nothing else that points to a problem than just relax and enjoy your very amazing boy!
