my son is 14 months old and I believe he is showing signs of autism. I really want someone else's opinion.
he flaps his arms
he has no interest in other children
he doesn't point or wave but he does clap.
he won't look at something I point to. Only my hand.
he has an obsession wheels or anything that spins/goes around
he hasn't said any words besides mama which he does not say to me directly.
he is obsessed with a certain channel which he has watched since about 6 months..will not watch anything else like CBeebies etc
hes a very fussy eater. Very fussier with textures.
he does now look me in the eyes but that's a new thing as he never used to.
he doesn't respond to his name, he will ignore me completely.
he was sitting up early though, crawled at at 9 months and walked at 12 months.
he does laugh and smile when being tickled or being chased.
there is no imaginative play. Doesn't respond to toys like phones etc. He does know what a cup is and how to use it.
what does everyone think?
its all starting to worry me now. And he gets older he doesn't seem to be doing things he probably should be doing for his age.
i know he's young still and he might pick things up yet but it's still worrying. Need an outside opinion.
