Hi I know my son is super young still but he does a few strange things. This is my first so I'm not sure if what he is doing is typical or if they are early signs of autism. Will mom's with a child with autism and mom's with a child without autism respond please.
This is what he is doing that I find strange:
-Ankle and wrist circles when excited
-Stares at lights brings close to face
-Looks at fingers
-Holds things close to eyes sometimes
-Turns books,iPhone, paci over and over
-Loves water gets excited
-Loves water by ears
-Kicks legs aggressively and shakes arms when excited
-Holds hands together over head back and forth
-not imitating sounds but some actions
-not much of a cuddlier, he will push away.
-bad rash under chin
-has to be bounced to sleep
Positives:
- looks to his name
-has a social smile
-he is obsessed with me, I think he is going through speration anxiety.
-he cuddles with me most of the time when eating and before bed.
-great pincer grasp and transfer objects
-says mama he use to say ah, ba, c, g sounds but not anymore :(
Well what do you think am I'm thinking too much or should I seek early intervention?
Thanks
