about autism...

autism runs in the family. what are some signs that my daughter might have it? i know its hereditary and her dad has a minor form of it. so far my daughter is 8 months and seems to be doing fine (still not crawling yet tho)

    There are many different symptoms. The biggest one is refusing to interact or make eye contact. The other big one is playing independently or next to other children but never trying to interact with them. I wouldn't worry about her not crawling yet though, they learn to in their own time and some kids don't ever crawl, they go right to walking :-)
      Autism speaks is an AWESOME website for awareness and education...take a look they can help you with your concerns!
