I have an autistic son...I have suspicions that my younger son may have autism too...but my Dr. just blows it off when I mention it. Like he doesn't take me serious.What can I do?

I have mentioned to my child's Dr. that I would like to have my younger son Daniel checked and he says oh,he's perfectly healthy..you worry too much. Don't know what to do..find another Dr. maybe?

My older brother was diagnosed with having autism at six months. My mother insisted that I get my 10 month old son evaluated because he seemed "off" to her. When my son's evaluation therapist came over; they said my son was perfectly normal, and some times when you have other children with special needs; you tend to focus on that with other children's development.

Also, what kind of signs are you picking up?
