5 months is when I noticed he was different. He didn't prefer human contact at all. He seemed to show no emotions. He was not dxed until age five.

My baby is. 5 months ... she doesnt mind being held.. she will smile sometimes and even laugh every once in a while but not as much as i think she should be. She seems really distant sometimes. Im probably just being paranoid. I worked with autistic children at the day care i used to work at. Maybe she is just a bit delayed?

1 yr I started seeing things. But looking back there were signs at 4 or 5 months, I just had no clue at the time. She was 21 months when she was diagnosed.

At around 3 mos old we noticed that our son really didn't respond to loud or sudden sounds. As time went on he didn't coo, babble or squeal like other babies. We initially thought it might be a hearing problem, then just delayed. He's been in therapy since just after turning a yr old.

He was diagnosed PDD-NOS, 2 weeks ago at the age of 4 yrs.

I was a special ed teaching assistant for years and thought I was being paranoid also and possibly oversensitive since he was a preemie with issues. I have 2 older children and although I know all children develop differently something just seemed off.

Can't hurt to have your baby evaluated. If it's nothing then great but if there are some delays the earlier you get some help the better:)
