Parenting & Autism Discussions
Discussions for parents raising kids in the Autism spectrum.
My son is 3, and his doctor suspects he may be on the autism spectrum. He is extremely intelligent with no major developmental delays.
If any parents have experience with high-functioning autism in this age group, I'm wondering what behaviors might be obvious warning signs for 3 year olds.
Here is my son's suspicious behaviour:
-He is pretty clumsy...walks somewhat awkwardly compared to his peers but not drastically.
-He throws MAJOR "tantrums" and can become aggressive towards others and himself as well as being generally destructive of things.
-He tends to be very intent and focused on interests and not much else.
-He will repeat the same thing over and over again, not in a frantic way but just out of excitement.
-He is pretty picky about clothes, insists on sweatpants.
-He likes giving kisses but isn't really enthusiastic about getting kisses.
-He gets in these hyperactive modes and no corrective parenting strategies or redirection works to calm him down....
