Do you have an autisitic child or no anyone that does? I admit I didn't know what Autism was until my mid 20's while in college. This was unheard of, well for me anyway.

When did you all notice "differences" in your children and what were those differences? Did you take them to be evaluated immediately? Did you know anything about being on the spectrum when your children were diagnosed?
