As our kids grow, they will show us what their strengths and weaknesses are. All we can do is wait and in the meantime give them the services they need to shore up their CURRENT weaknesses. Their parents are hoping their child are not on the spectrum.
Kids with autism often find strange things to do with their toys. The might spin, flick, or line them up - and they tend to keep doing it without any apparent purpose. This is a early warning for every parent. For most kids on the spectrum, the most common signs of autism start during the critical periods of early development, normally between 12 to 18 months of age. Early diagnosis is important, because early treatment can make a big difference.
