My 3-year-old has autism. Should my 1-year-old's vaccine schedule be different because of this?

Please NO: There is absolutely no reason to vary your other child's immunizations because you have a child with autism. That TV myth has been disproved time and time again. Amish people get autism at the same rate as others, and they don't get any vaccines. The study that suggested a relationship was found to be fraudulent and the doctor who wrote it is in jail and lost his medical license. ...Read more

I was diagnosed with autism at 3 years old if i go to the doctor now at 19 would they still have it on my record?

I was diagnosed with autism at 3 years old if i go to the doctor now at 19 would they still have it on my record?

Maybe,maybe not: This somewhat depends on the extent of the record. Sometimes such labels are used in early childhood and are found not to fit well when the kid is older.If so, the early label becomes part of the history. Someone found to be developmentally delayed at 3 may catch up by their teens and the label would obviously not apply. Such is the problem with observational diagnoses. ...Read more

I have a 4 year old daughter, and ever since she was young she flaps her arms when's she's excited or happy. Could this be a sign of autism?

Autism is characterized by difficulty with interpersonal relationships, communication, using language and abstract concepts. Does your daughter speak, make eye contact, and engage with you and others? If so, she is not autistic - enjoy the flapping because there is nothing better than a happy and excited kid. ...Read more
