Question about Autism in children?
I know there are some moms out there who have children who are autistic and I really need your help. I am keeping a little girl who is two and she seems really developmentally delayed in areas in speech. I have also that she holds her hands and a certain position and that she doesn't communicate. Instead she screams and yells. This could be just the problem of not being able to communicate and being two but my 9 month old is saying more words than she is. If there are any websites out there that could be of any help I would really appreciate. I have tried to talk to her mom but that didn't help. My sister, who is a special ed teacher, thought something was wrong but didn't know for sure what considering her age. What age were your children diagnose with Autism. The reason why I am so interested in Autism is because my sister made a comment that it could be mild autism and so did her uncle. (The child's uncle) I am really worried about the little girl and if there is something I could be doing here during the day while I am keeping her I want to know. I want to help her. I try to read to her as much as possible and everytime I am doing something like feeding her, etc I name off the word and hopes that maybe this will build her vocab. The worst part of it is that I don't even know if she understands me. Sometimes I think she does and sometimes I think she doesn't .
