Quoting March 2013:" My daughter is 3 and she is autistic. She was screened just after she turned one..She is making a lot ... [snip!] ... added fish oil and omega 3s to my daughters diet the developist says it helps with the brain developement. Just as a sugestion."
I'd really like to get him in ASAP. I'm filling out the journal as much as I can remember from yesterday and today, and he just has odd habits that I've been told are signs/symptoms of Autism.
Like yesterday, he took several toy cars and just lined them up in a perfectly straight line across the kitchen table. He does this a lot.
He also found a round touch activated L.E.D. light and carried it around for probably 10 minutes just staring into the light or turning it on and off repeatedly. Then he ended up sitting the light down and spinning it. He loves lights, flash lights, light switches, but has a special interest in L.E.D. lights.
He FREQUENTLY appears like he does not hear people when they speak to him. He does not respond to his name most of the time.
He's HORRIBLE for head banging. Has no interest in other children or engaging in group activities, prefers to play alone. His speech is pretty bad delayed (He only knows maybe 5 words and babbles). He hates being touched, picked up, or held. He has unusual attachments to certain toys (Taking said toy away will lead to a violent tantrum to conquer all violent tantrums), Spends long periods of time focusing on the wheels on cars, but not the actual car (He just spins them and stares), He moves his fingers infront of his eyes a lot. Pulls his hair when frustrated or confused, etc.
I'd really like to get him evaluated just to find out what's going on. That's my biggest concern because I don't know why he does the things he does, or how to try and go about the situations.
