My son is only about 11 months but Im so paranoid of him having something and not noticing early on. My sister has Aspergers and none of us really noticed or said anything until she was close to 10 years old (and first they just said ADHD and she didnt get a proper diagnosis until she was in her young teens) and I think it made things really hard on her since we had to educate ourselves and her as well. Plus she didnt have the benefit of having a set system from a young age.
I know a few things to look for but I dont know when its too early to look into it. I dont want to be paranoid and start picking at things that are possibly nothing but normal toddler behavior but I also dont want to be dismissive and miss the chance to help him from an early age.
I called early intervention for some eating issues (I cant get him to eat anything but breastmilk from the boob and we have been trying for about 6 months) so now Im a little nervous.
I just dont want to make the same mistake my parents made in ignoring the signs until hes in jr high.
