I have a 2 1/2 year old son. He is social, loving and speaks fairly well. He also makes great eye contact. The concern is that he just started this habbit of hand flapping when he gets excited. For example, he was so excited to see his uncle this morning and started flapping. I am worried because I've heard that this can be a sign of autism or developmental delays. I am wondering if it can also be considered normal? Also, his pediatrician says he does not have autism, but this habit just developed and I haven't really run it by her yet. Again, it is only when he's excited. I hope this is normal.
