  • Please trust your mommy-sense and get your child evaluated. The sooner he get professional help, the better off you all will be.

  • If you believe this, you should have him evaluated immediately. They say the earlier it is diagnosed the better the chances are that they will be able to help the child.

    Does not play with other children
    Speech delayed
    Gross motor skills delayed
    Fine motor skills delayed
    Lines up toys
    Spins

    Talk to the Special Education teacher at your school and ask for an evaluation. Good luck
