    Talk to your childs doctor if you suspect something is not quite right. In my experience (working with children), they can usually be Dx at around age 4/5.

    I don't know what to suspect, I just want to be aware. thnx

    That would be a question to be answered by a proper and qualified physician to do so. There are many different levels of autism.

    Go on the National Autistic Society website.Here you will find a checklist and lots of explanations. Having been in your position 9 years ago my advice to you is to take it all slowly and don't tick everything too quickly as there's no-one in the world that doesn't satisfy some of the criteria as listed!!If you suspect that there is a problem ask your doctor for a referral. Your health visitor should also be made aware of your concerns.


    Good luck.
