3 month old Autism advice?
My 3 month old daughter is unfortunately showing the signs of Autism. Our Pedi is asking us to wait 2 more weeks to see if she starts to make better eye contact and starts to smile but in my gut, sadly, I feel like this will be the diagnosis. We have already called a specialist who wont be able to see us until August.
My question to the group, is there any advice in terms of treatment or exercises I can do with the baby to help her along? I feel helpless and want to do anything I can to help my little girl.
Thank you in advance for your replies
I truly appreciate the posts so far. 2 follow ups 1. We had her eyes checked last week and she passed with flying colors. 2. According to several websites early signs of Autism can be detected in 3 months http://www.parents.com/baby/health/autism/autism-month-by-month-guide/
Thank you all again!
I am by no means totally educated on the fact, but I am fairly certain that autism is not something that is diagnosed in infants. It becomes apparent in toddler hood and a lengthy observation period follows before a true diagnosis of autism. If your baby is unresponsive to stimuli and not smiling, there could be literally hundreds of other reasons. Your baby is only 3 months old, I would not stress out until you know a bit more information. But please try and relax in the knowledge that autism is not apparent in a 3 month old baby.
