Hello after searching all day on the net my question is still not resolved. Feb 7th of this year the best neurologist in Louisiana diagnosed my 33 month old daughter with Autism after seeing her display several signs of Autism. On the other hand she is very lovable maybe to lovable and will look others in the eye. So with that said I always have to point out the autistic behaviors to others or they do not beleive she has autism, for instance her special instructor said "she has very bad sensory issues, but I do not see autism" and her soon to be special ed preschool teacher said "she does not seem to have autism" I hate when others tell me that, now I understand she may not look like a child with autism but since when does autism have a look? Should I stay with what the neurologist said who has been diagnosing autism for 30 years or side with these teachers? Im confused if not autism what else is there that she could have? Is there anything that resembles autism? Or can a child still be lovable and look you in the eye with autism?
