Pediatric Occupational & Speech/Language Therapists are skilled in intensive, repetitive behavioral therapy aimed at helping her achieve a healthy diet. She needs to see a pediatric dentist for children with special needs when stable. Call Child Find of your public school district to assess her overall development & degree of Autism for Early Childhood Special Education, also very important at 3.

An assessment by

Child Find of your public school district will define her overall developmental levels & any degree of Autism she may have for Early Childhood Special Education without a diagnosis or toileting. Tongue-flicking may indicate seizure activity, found in children with developmental delays +/- Autism. You may ask for another opinion from a child neurologist or developmental/behavioral pediatrician.

Is having blood in the eye in a three year old a sign of autism?

Blood
Blood in eye does not relate to autism. It could be sub conjunctival haemorrhage.

My 1 year old may be showing signs of autism. Is there a test for this?

Comprehensive eval

Autism_spectrum_disorder
While there are some standard ways to assess autism they are best used as part of a comprehensive evaluation of the child. You are very wise to have the child evaluated early because the earlier effective intervention begins the easier it will be.

Dr. Johanna Fricke answered:

Could my 2 year olds ear problems cause autism like symptoms?

Fluctuating hearing

Autism_spectrum_disorder
loss from chronic middle ear effusion does not impact a child's intent to communicate socially, nor to engage in reciprocal social interaction or pretend play. See the M-CHAT on firstsigns.org. A 12-month-old should point for desired objects; a 14-16 month-old should point to share interest & look at items to which parents point. Joint attention (shared interest) precedes social communication.

What's the best way to know if my 2 year old has autism?

Observation

Autism
Because there are no blood tests to test for autism, we rely on behavioral observations. For parents here are a few questions: Does your child make eye contact? Will they imitate you? Do they respond to their names? Do they play with a wide variety of toys? Does your child point to show you things? If you answer no to 2 or 3 of these, see your pediatrician and share your concerns. Best!

How could a 4 year old with autism be different to a 4 year old without?

Delayed speech

Autism_spectrum_disorder
A 4 year old with Autism will have had delayed speech and language. They will also play alone more and not want to interact with others as much as a non-Autistic 4 year old will. There are always grey areas so if you think your 4 year old is not developing normally or talking as the should, see your pediatrician as soon as possible. Early intervention is very helpful at that age for your child.

Dr. Bryan H. Levey answered:

Could you PLEASE tell me symptoms of autism in a two year old boy?

It varies

Autism is an incredibly complex problem that manifests itself in many ways. If you are looking for a simple answer like you would get for a simpler disease (eg: chicken pox causes fever and rash), then you will be frustrated. There are books on this subject....big ones. If you are concerned that your child is autistic, you need to see your pediatrician or a pediatric neurologist.
