No!: Please get your child to see a specialist in autistic disorders right away. These kids are quite special and have an extremely unique way of learning. Music, the arts have been quite helpful in contributing in easing frustration in these very special kids. Please don't delay, sooner the better.

No: Crying daily is not a normal part of autism. Please have her evaluated by a child psychiatrist or pediatrician who is knowledgable about autism and its comobidities ( other illnesses that often accompany autism).
