Is it a sign of autism that my 3 year carry's five to six toys when we leave the house? Do autistic children let their parents help with and touch their stuff?

OhN forgot to add....I thought that if he did let me help with his stuff, which he does, if it's too much to carry, then that was even more validation that I shouldn't worry. But Kaiser had me upset.

Thank you so much; Kaiser Permanente said that could be a sign of autism. Thank you.

Lots of kids like to haul stuff around with them. Our kids are a lot older than three, and still like to do this.

Three year olds often want to be independent and assert control over their world. It's not strange if a three year old wants to do things for themselves and doesn't want people touching their favourite toys.
