Hi, i am sort of new to this but i have a 3 year old child that i believe as asperger's due to the research done. Is a 3 year old too young to be evaluated on for asperger's and what are some symptoms i may see at this age?

No, three years is not too young to be evaluated.  You can talk to your child's doctor about signs/symptoms and to get a referral for a behavioral evaluation.

 In Pennsylvania I was referred to a great organization that has helped me a lot. They will help with kids up to the age of 21. I also want to add it costs you 0. They won't even ask about insurance. They sent a neuro nurse to my house to meet my son, discuss concerns and whatever else you have questions about.
