Question?: Autism Signs In Toddler Girls

Michael asks…

Does my son just have a speech delay or is it something more?? Maybe autism?

So I already know that he has a speech delay & I am already planning on taking him to get evaluated. But I just want some opinions from some other moms out there, especially mothers with sons. Okay I have a 3 year old son, he speaks a lot actually, ask him his name & he responds with both his 1st & last name. He knows his age, he knows his colors (but always calls red, blue for some reason lol) He can count 1-30 & recognizes all of them including the number 100. He knows a lot of shapes, when he sees a stop sign he says octagon. He also knows his ABCS & recognizes them & will sing the whole alphabet song clear as day. He follows directions, I tell him to pick up his toys & he will. He’ll sit down when I tell him to, etc. He even will comfort his little brother when he’s crying and says It’s okay baby, I’m sorry. Shhhh be quiet. He will let me know what he wants, I want a drink a water. Or I want cheese, popsicle, juice, milk, poptart, chicken, fries, cereal etc. Also since I’m mentioning food, he’s very picky, he’s only ate pizza once & that was when he was 1, he won’t try cheeseburgers, sandwiches, etc. He’s very sweet & loves to cuddle. He’s a little too social sometimes & embarrasses me at the store b/c he says hi to pretty much everyone he encounters. He loves other children but also I can see that they don’t accept him sometimes. Like maybe he’s trying to hard to be their friend. I’m trying to teach him that you can’t just expect everyone to give you attention. Anyway there’s one HUGE concern of mine… he sometimes, to converse will repeat exactly what I am saying or what the other person is saying like for an example, you say Hi Gavyn & he will say Hi Gavyn back… I know its echolalia. I hear autistic children have it sometimes but also I hear children with just a simple speech delay have it. I’m just scared though for him b/c I do feel like little kids are being overdiagnosed these days so a part of me wants to protect him from the label & that its my job as his mother to protect him but then at the same time I want him to get the help he needs if it is something serious. He has been a stay at home kid since day 1. My husband & I have been trying to think if we should home school or not but I would really like him to have the whole public school experience & make friends. To me he’s just a normal boy but sometimes I do catch people looking at him weird especially when he repeats stuff. So I was wondering was your son like this as well? Did he end up being okay? I just love my son so much & want the best for him. Any opinion is appreciated. Thanks

admin answers:

From what you posted…it doesn’t seem like he has Autism. My son is now 8, when he was a toddler I thought he may be Autistic because of some of his behaviours. He had a speech delay and sensory issues but…not Autistc. Alot of kids have Autistic traits, some adults also. My main concern with my son was flapping his arms. That is a charactaristic of Autism but also a sensory thing. I was told by alot of people..he is fine, he will grow out of it. BUT…i went ahead and got him tested. I had to because…what if? So..relax…get your son tested to be sure. He seems very vocal and very smart. Alot of times children that are very smart…have quirks.

Home Schooling is something I never concidered….it wasn’t for me. I have a friend who homeschools her 4 children. She sent them all to preschool and kindergarden. She was is a teacher, but isn’t working in a school. I asked her why she sent her kids to preschool and kindergarden. She said, she wanted them to go to learn to be social, learn to be around alot of other kids, and make there own friends, and have that backround. . At that age learning to share with others, and be around other kids was important to her. She also gives the choice. She homeschools 1st and 2nd grade, then asks the children if they want to to to school, or homeschool. They have all chosen to homeschool. They are lovely girls and very social. To me, it could be there personalities but..all of them are very outgoing and try hard to make frineds..which is good, but makes me wonder if they “need” to be in a classroom. But they are able to make that choice. The do have friends, they are in karate, and go to a homeschool group once or twice a week, and are very involved in there church and go to chruch school.

What is his speech delay? Seems like he talks alot. Lisp, studdering?

Question?: Autism Symptoms In 6 Year Old

James asks…

how do i distinguish autism from a learning disability?

how would one know if they are autistic or have a learning disability or perhaps both?

admin answers:

Some of the behaviors that both of my autistic spectrum children have esp. When they were young, my 7 year old still has are: hand flapping and pigeon toe-walking (during the younger years); esp. When they were nervous or worried; repetitive actions esp. My daughter did this. She would not really play with toys just line them up, no imaginative play, not really much doll play, mostly just lined up stuffed animals or whatever.

Most autism are said to have delayed lang. Like my son, he saw a speech therapist at 3 because he was not speaking. But my daughter on the other hand was an early speaker at 6 months, but did a lot of echolalia where she would repeat phrases over and over again (so my husband really had to watch his language!!!) They are also very obsessive about things. I think all kids have this to some extent, but they really take it to another level. They always have an obsession and it is very difficult, almost impossible for them to focus on anything else. Currently, my daughter is obsessed with Pokemon, before that dragons, before that dinosaurs, human body, etc!

They also both have sensory integration disorder which my son has the most severely. He cannot stand being touched, hugged, or kissed. They both cannot stand anything sticky being touched and eat fried or barbecued chicken by encasing it with paper towels (they love the taste but hate the feeling!) My son used to scream being bathed or touching grass (still doesn’t like baths!)

My daughter doesn’t seem to have any noticeable learning disabilities, but my son does have the dyslexia that his father and grandmother do. That has been addressed with a lot of Orton Gillingham reading programs, phonemic awareness (also called phonological awareness) programs, phonics, vocabulary, etc.

You can tell if one is dyslexic pretty quickly by going to http://www.interdys.org/servlet/compose?section_id=5&page_id=41 (If you have an older or younger child, click on the Symptoms for Preschool Child or 5th-8th or High School & College or Adults and look at the symptoms according to age.

My son has always exhibited all the symptoms of each age as a preschooler and as he has grown. The addition of his dad and his grandmother having dyslexia (I believe dyslexia is genetic in origin) and if there is a strong family history of dyslexia that is another good clue.

Question?: Autism Signs And Symptoms

Sharon asks…

How do you know if a child has Autism?

My three year old nephew is a pretty regular kid. He can tlk but he doessnt understand things and usually ends up repeating you but he is very smart in many ways. My other relatives say it could be autism. How do you knnow for sure?

admin answers:

Most autistic children have a normal to high I.Q. The biggest symptom is the failure to acquire language. If your nephew is not using his language appropriately and just repeating what he hears, it could be something called echolalia, which could be a sign of autism. The best way to know is to take him to the pediatrician, and see if they recommend a screening. They will tell you where to go. You really need a professional to see him because autism can be a spectrum of symptoms and behaviors and some children have it more severely than others.

One thing is for sure, early intervention is the key. So, if you really suspect autism, don’t hesitate to have him diagnosed. The sooner he is diagnosed, the sooner he can receive help. Children who receive early intervention are usually more functional as they grow.

Question?: Autism Signs In Older Children

Lizzie asks…

If a child is autistic, can they mimic sounds you make?

I’m trying to rule out autism with my 16 month old child b/c he has some signs of autism but he will copy sounds I make to him and I used to stick my tongue out at him and he started doing that to me copying what i do. Does anybody know if autistic children can do these things? I’m taking him next week to get him checked out but I’m just trying to have some reassurance.

admin answers:

In answer to your question, Yes, a child with autism can mimic sounds and can do it so much, it’s actually one of the recognised ICD10 signs of Autism; it’s known as Echolalia, medically – but more commonly referred to as ‘Parroting’.

Don’t take it as a direct sign that your child is autistic though, many children this age will copy what they hear, it’s how they learn to communicate 🙂

Autistic Signs – Signs And Symptoms Of The Autistic Disorder

Autistic Signs

The mainly signs of autism crop up during the early infancy and the disorder is usually diagnosed by the age of 3 when parents are alarmed by the abnormal development of their child. Infants above all improve usually until the age of 2 when the growth as well as the mental development hastily regresses. Autistic Signs

The autistic symptoms vary from one patient to another, from what i read in mild to severe forms. Between the first warning signs is the abnormal response to different stimuli like light or sound. Noises may appear painful to them, smells are overwhelmingly strong and touches are receipted as pains.

Loud noises caused by vehicles or machines, and very bright lights from different sources, trigger crises and inconsolable crying. The most specific behavior for the autistic patients is the indifference showed to the surroundings and the satisfaction of playing and being alone. They show no real interest in toys and are usually uninterested to interact with others, characteristics called in the medical specialty as protodeclarative pointing.

The activity level varies from an increase to reduction and autistic children resist cuddling. Autistic patients laugh, cry or are feeling distressed for unapparent reasons and cannot express their needs using the actual language. The use different gesture instead of words to express their wishes, as the impaired language development is obvious. Autistic Signs

Patients with high functioning autism manage to develop certain rudimentary communication skills but these cannot really serve for an actual social interaction. Some words or phrases are used repetitively (echolalia) and their patterns of speech lack expression or intonation. Usually these patients want to be alone and show no interest to other people’s presence.

Resisting changes in their routine or repeating an action over and over again is a part of their daily behavior. Autistic patients tend to flap their arms or turn in circles repetitively and with unknown meaning. In severe distress periods they engage in self-injurious actions like biting or scratching themselves, banging their heads. Warning signs in small children are their reject for cuddling or touching, often behavioral outbursts, inexplicable attachment to some objects and the radical ignorance to many others. Autistic Signs

Autistic persons cannot maintain an actual eye-contact, they do not fear danger and show an under sensitivity towards pain. Most of these children prove an abnormal sustained play combined with uneven motor skills. Don’t let your child suffer anymore! Lead your child out of his world through Autistic Signs program now!
