My son turned two in September. He is in speech therapy because his language is slightly delayed. His expressive language is delayed but his receptive is great. He is very social and is around children his age every day in a Toddler program. He does not have a lot of the autism symptoms. However, there are little things that I notice. For example, he gets frustrated when his toys don't do exactly what he wants them to. He will often pick one toy and carry it everywhere he goes. Yesterday, he received a gift called a pocket nativity. There are small flannel pieces that he carries around as a stack. One of the pieces was out of place in his stack and he became very upset. Overall, I am concerned because he will fix his attention on something for awhile, but then he will let it go. His doctor and the speech therapist think that he is basically on track. I just notice little things that I wonder about...

I know that Toddlers frustrate easily in general so maybe I shouldn't be so concered. He also gets upset every now and then when his food touches. But... it is not all the time.

my daughters gets very frustrated when things don't "fit" she likes to put things in places in her little farm and then when she tries to get them out she gets very upset. sounds about right. she is not delayed in any way shape or form. she loves to carry toys around. she is like attached to her a blankie. she sleeps eats and even goes to daycare with it. well his attention span is getting longer and longer. he can sit and play for alonger periods of time with little distractions now.
