autism symptoms?

A: Hi Tina; I"m happy to help. The criteria for failing the M-Chat, which means making a referral for "possible" ASD), is failing any 2 critical items OR any 3 or more items. Your daughter failed 3 critical items plus 4 noncritical items. These does not necessarily mean that she has an ASD. The CHAT and M-CHAT were developed to slightly over-identify children who may be at risk for ASD, with the thought that it"s better to be on the safe side and not screen out children when they may have an ASD. Although she is pretty young, she may have high functioning autism/Asperger"s, which as you know, really doesn"t show itself to psychologists and/or educators until around the age of 4. My guess is that evaluation team at this point would write her behavior off to...

Know the Signs: An autism symptoms Checklist

A: A perceived influx of autism diagnoses handed out to children in the past several years has parents constantly on the lookout for a signs.

autism symptoms

A: Hi Christine, As you said, I can"t possibly diagnose your child on the Internet.  However, by the description you"ve given, it doesn"t sound like you need be concerned about autism. The behaviors you describe are in line with sensory defensiveness.  You"ll be amazed what a difference a good OT (occupational therapist) can make. Walking on tip-toes is most certainly sensory defensiveness.  You"re lucky he"s such a good eater.  Sometimes sensory challenges affect this area too.   And I am not phased at all by your description of the incident with the marker.  Pressing too hard or too light is common.  And as for the "tight fisted shaking" - that"s synonymous with sensory challenges too.  So is the opening and closing of...

What Are the Physical symptoms in autism?

A: Physical symptoms of autism are difficult to describe because they range in topography (what the behavior actually looks like) and intensity. Often times when thinking of physical symptoms of autism most people picture children or adults who are significantly impaired by autism and may enage in stereotypical repetitive behaviors that are usually a function of self-stimulation (such as flapping of the hands, walking on tiptoes and other odd motoric mannerisms). What people don''t know is not all children or adults with autism will display physical symptoms at all or that are outwardly odd. Many characteristics of


What are the FIRST signs of autism? serious replys only -thank you?

A: Withdrawal of affection. http://www.wrongdiagnosis.com/a/autism/symptoms.htm This looks like a good site, I have a cousin who''s son has autism. He''s in his thirties now and wasn''t diagnosed till after he was three. I was watching Dr.Phil with my cousin (who has a 7 month old) and there was a specialist that said you could tell if your baby has autism by looking at what he looks at when people talk to him - if he looks at their mouth he could have autism , if he looks at their eyes he should be healthy/normal Some kids do not want to be touched and withdraw from any contact. Others do not look at you ( looks sideways). Delays in reaching developmental milestones,...


autism!! Are there any cases of kids with autism that have not been vaccinated??

A: The latest on the incidence of autism as a result of thimerosal exposure doesn''t support this theory. Makes you wonder doesn''t it? I don''t know of any,but I work in a lab where I have regular autistic children in. Talking with many parents...it''s really interesting that this may be the "main" cause. Who knows what else that will turn up 20,30 Or 40 years down the line. there are lots of people that are autistic and it has nothing to do with being vaccinated. I have worked in this area for several years and saw quite a few of autistic children who had not been vaccinated, precisely due to parents'' fears. Interestingly, rates of measles have recently risen in some countries due to parents not getting their kids vaccinated....
