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 it possible a child with high functioning autism would show signs until close to 3 years old?

It's possible that a

child with Autistic Spectrum Disorder who acquires a large vocabulary but doesn't use it for age-appropriate reciprocal social I communication & has overdeveloped pattern recognition & rote memory is perceived as being precocious in developing preschool skills, while his non-compliance for non-preferred tasks, perseveration in preferred tasks & stereotypies are perceived as personality traits.

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

Autism_spectrum_disorder
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.

Dr. Scott J. Diede answered:

My 3 yr old son has high functioning autism. I read weighted blankets may help kids with this disorder. What exactly would they help him with?

Help relax and sleep

Autism
People with autism or Asperger's Syndrome often feel more comfortable with additional weight pressing against them. This can help them relax and sleep better at night. According to the Autism Speaks website, some insurance companies will even cover the cost of these if the claim is filled out properly.

Almost 3 yr old daughter told probable autism. Dx Semantic Pragmatic Disorder, Attention Concentration Deficit, Hyperactive Disorder. Need explained??

You deserve more

Autism
It sound like your toddler is diagnosed with potentially serious mental disorders. You deserve an explanation and your daughter's physician should arrange a meeting to discuss them with you- and also alternative differential diagnoses. Good luck!

Does an MRI result of "minimal nonspecific periventricular deep white matter intensities" correlate or rule out an autism diagnosis in a 3yr old girl?

No

Autism
The word 'non-specific' is the important one here, meaning that the 'deep white matter intensities' do not of themselves yield a diagnosis.

How much omega-3 to give 18 year old with autism?

See details

Open-uri20131216-11610-1nix48s
Several small studies have suggested some benefit from fish oil in children with autism. However, these studies involved only very small numbers of patients. The doses in the studies varied but the usual dose was 1, 000- 2,000 mg of omega-3 fatty acids daily.
