  • Autism symptoms vary widely so please see your doc. However, not wanting to be tounched/held, averting looking into peoples eyes, delayed speech, and sensory processing issues can be indicitive of autism.

  • If you are concerned, get your child evaluated immediately. Early intervention is best.

  • Autism is NOT a cookie-cutter disorder where everyone is the same, it is a big, broad spectrum. So what my son does yours may/may not do. I think that mommy of two 388 did a great job with her lists! If you suspect your child has Autism then you need to call your child's doctor and ask for a referral to someone for an evaluation. Autism is NOT the end of the world. If there is a diagnosis see what programs or help is available in your area and get your child the help he/she needs.
