What were some of the first signs that your child may be autistic ?

For my son it was obsessively lining up blocks and cars. He would eat non-food items every time he went outside. I thought he was "the perfect" baby and toddler because he was always off by himself playing. Well, I learned that, that was also a sign of autism.

Make sure to add your friends, so we can make this a great support for other moms with autistic children.

It was when I researched hand flapping that I became concerned. We just thought it was a cute thing she did when she was happy.

It took me until my son was 3, that I really was willing to face that something was different about him. I knew he was delayed, but thought it was just that a delay. My son also did the hand flapping, he would put things in rows, he was obsessed with wheels, he would also crawl around on his head in a big circle around the room.
