Do You Have an Inkling or Suspicion Your Child Has Autism?

The powerful question is, do you have an inkling or suspicion your child has autism? If you are thinking or feeling suspicious your child could have autism, do as much research as you can to learn about the disorder of autism and gain knowledge.

I find one way to keep current with the behavior of your child, is to keep a notebook, journal, notepad, available. You can write down data regarding your child. For example: Keep track of the dates, time, and possible behavior pattern changes and symptoms that occur in your child.

In your notebook, journal, notepad, write down the suspicions or inkling you have gathered from the research you did about the disorder of autism. Some of the points of interest that could be a concern are:

* What kind of weather was present?

* Were bright lights or flickering lights active?

* Loud noises.

* Were new people in the surroundings that were not familiar to your child?

* Did confusion cause stress?

* Did new places that were visited and not familiar to your child, cause anxiety?

* Do you find your child has delays in learning, reading, speech, compared to what other children at his or her age are expected to do?

* Does your child have poor eye contact? * Does your child have a spacial stare when you are trying to talk to him or her, or get their attention?

* Do you find your child is having difficulty communicating?

* Does your child have no interest in playing with other children or toys?

* Does your child bang his or her head on the ground or wall?

Do you have any inkling, there may be something your child is doing, and his or her behavior is not the way you feel is appropriate? If so, make notes and write that information in your notebook, journal, notepad. Include times, places, and dates, that you will want to document.
