My husband and I are concerned about our 3 year olds development.
When did you notice your child had autism? How has it effected your family? What are some of the first signs you noticed?
We think he is showing signs of autism. But are not 100% sure. I don't know alot about it.
Any help would be nice, thanks!

My husband who was my boyfriend at the time mentioned that he thought my son (2yrs at the time) might be autistic (sons father was not in the picture). A few years before meeting me he lived with a couple who had 2 VERY HIGHLY autistic boys. My son avoided eye contact, lined his toys up and would have a complete meltdown when I touched or moved them. He also had a meltdown when our routine changed in any way. I studied his behavior online and then mentioned it to his pedi when I noticed he had a lot of symptoms. They referred him to a Developmental Pediatrician who diagnosed him with autism at 4yrs old. It has been a challenge but there are some awesome groups on here for mom of autistic kids and there are many other resources in your area for kids with autism. There are also school resources for kids with autism. I would get a referral and have him tested. GL
