My 3 year old autistic boy fell and broke his arm new years eve. This is his third broken arm in a year and I'm wondering do autistic children fall down a lot more than others? He is going to a special needs preschool and I know that these people are trained to take notes of the children and look for signs of child abuse. I am paranoid that with as many falls he takes and all the bumps and bruises he has that they will think that I am abusing my little guy, when he's really just suffering from a case of being a very active little boy. I can't help but worry when these days so many people are quick to say abuse, especially now that he has broken his arm for the third time! Poor little guy has broken both arms and running out of arms to break! I am just overly paranoid or do autistic children fall down a lot?
