My son turned 3 yrs this March, He says very few words. He has no interest in potty training. He flaps his arms when he gets excited, I thought he would beat me to death during the fireworks display! He is very bullheaded, gets mad when he does not get his way, but it is really easy to make him start laughing when he gets mad. He hardly ever cries and is almost always smiling. When he was about 2 yrs he loved to line things up and the line had to be perfect. Now he likes to stack things. He is the most loving little guy, he loves kisses, hugs, being held and being rocked. He understands when we tell him to do things and seems to understand what we are saying to the point of what is normal for his age. Right now he is on a kick of pointing at things so you tell him what they are. I don't know if he just a late bloomer or if he has a form of Autism. I would love any feedback you can give. It would be great to talk to someone that has a child similiar to my precious little guy. There are so many more things I would like to tell that he is doing but I have already witten a novel.

your son sounds wonderful. what a loving and tender boy. What has your pediatrician said? Have you had any early intervention screening of any kind. what state do you live in? there are enough signs you described to investigate it further. It is not definitely autism. Do know that with our experience, our son showed great signs of affection, had numerous ear infections when little, and we were distracted for quite a while with the idea of a language delay.

My three year ild son has autism, and he sounds just like your boy. I would call around so you can get him tested by a specialist so you can get him help now.. Good luck!

Hi Lainey this is my first time on the sight and I read your story, it was like I had written it myself. My son will be 3 in september and we just got the news 4 days ago that he is autistic. I'm still not sure if I believe it's true. His name is Riley and he honestly sounds just like your son. It doesn't seem right that just because 4 or 5 doctors observe him for a few hours that they can just label him. He is my everything and I just don't want to believe its true. So no matter what anyone labels your son just remember that he is the same loving and wonderful child that he always has been. I would love to chat if you get a chance.

Hi. I work in a school district, as a special-education paraprofessional. I have been blessed to care for and help many different children of various ages, with a variety of challenges. I recently listened to / watched a woman share her incredible story of raising a son with autism. It touched me deeply. Her son was healed, a few years back, and continues to improve in his schooling. I ordered her book and found so much hope in her experience. Hope that applies to everyone, including families with autism but not limited to only autism. My heart goes out to all. If anyone is interested in the details of the book and the radio / t.v. program, please e-mail me at [email protected] (Since it is my understanding that some things cannot be posted.) With excitement, encouragement, and heart-felt appreciation and compassion to every family touched by especially autism...There IS Hope.
