I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, but I wanted some opinions. I have a friend that is like a sister to me, and her kids are almost like my own. They spend long periods of time with my husband, son, and myself from time to time.
She has a two year old little boy and he was just diagnosed with Autism. I am just confused, I have never heard of a child so young being diagnosed. I have worked in child care for over ten years and have never run into this. I have also worked with many autistic children that have been sever and high functioning. This little guys doesn't seem to have any of the "signs" to me, but I know I'm not an expert.
Just wondering if anyone has ever heard of a child this young being diagnosed. And, do you think they should be diagnosed and labeled so young?
