The last few weeks he has become very fussy with food, he wont eat meat he will only eat biscuits, a sandwich, noodles or liquid foods. Im hoping im wrong and that it he just has delayed development but i cant stop looking at the signs of autism and seeing that he has a few of them
    Sounds like my 20mth old. I'm more concerned about my 3.5 yr old ATM!

    Some of the signs to watch for in very young children are if they are not using gestures, ie does he point to things, wave, clap etc? does he reach up to you? does he give you eye contact?
    If you have concerns a visit to your gp might be helpful.

    I am going through this at the moment with Ds2 . 18 months.
    The pead saw us last week and is going to keep an eye on it as they don't start testing until 2.
    But Ds2 is doing a lot of things that are on the extreme end of the spectrum.

    Pm me if you want to talk about it hun.
