“You could be among the lucky few whose child catches up on their own, but I’ve never been one to count on being in the 1%. Hoping against hope that things resolve on their own is like hoping to win the lottery.” – Renee Travis
Physical milestones that go by unmet – sitting up, rolling over, crawling, grasping things with fingers, passing objects between their hands. These are all important physical milestones, and their absence or delay are important signs that something is amiss.
Early signs of Autism can be seen in HOW children play with their toys and interact with their world. Typically developing babies enjoy things, but their attention span is short and they quickly move on. With autism, this is not the case.
The way a baby smiles at you, makes noises at you, looks at you, cries for attention, gestures for things, responds to your interactions – these are some of the many ways your baby is communicating with you on a daily basis.
