  • There are some good websites with information on signs to look for, like:

    http://www.firstsigns.org/

    http://www.autismspeaks.org/whatisit/learnsigns.php

    You should also talk to his doctor about your concerns.

  • If, after you check out the websites above, you still think he could possibly be autistic, definitely tell your peditrician you need a referral to a child psychiatrist to have him tested. I am in the process of gettin my son tested for Aspergers syndrome right now and it is a long lengthy process, but in the end knowing the right answers will help you become the kind of parent your child needs most.
    I have felt like a failure of a parent for so long, because I havent known what kind of mom my son needs and now we are all getting it figured out and that makes me very very happy.
