Probably none.: Most chidren, autistic or not, eat an adequate diet and do not require vitamns past the infancy period. If an autistic child does not eat a variety of foods, or eats alot of non-food items, then he might benefit from a multivitamin. Vitamins are not an appropriate treatment for autism.See 2 more doctor answers
No, not true: A child who is growing fine, developing skills on time, interacting with other people, emotionally nice to be with, and smiles happily is likely normal. Such a child may point or not point, but it shouldn't matter, as the rest of his life looks normal. However, if a child has several odd traits or behaviors, and one of those behaviors is "not pointing", then he might (not must) be autistic.See 2 more doctor answers
Not intentionally: Often children with autism spectrum do not understand social interaction. What may seem normal to them may seem aggressive to another.
