I just saw on the news tonight about it being world autism day and worried if my toddler may have it?
One mum was being interviewed and said the first thing they noticed was their toddler lining their toys up.
My toddler has been lining toys and other things up for a while.
He also has trouble with things being out of place. Eg if i dont put the butter back in the same place and shelf he gets all panicy and will have a tantrum if we dont move it to the right place.
He also doesnt go too well out of routine.
Ive been reading up on autism and it mentions trouble with social interactions and communication. My son can be really shy with some people but talks and communicates with some people he knows. Although it can take him a looong time. His lottle friend next door for example was about 4 months kf playing with him regularly before he loosened up. Other times he will approach strangers and talk to them We just always said oh he is just shy. But i am just wondering if this is possibly another sign of autism?
i have never really thought much about these things as individually we put them down to shyness, terrible 2s and personality but could they all be linked?
Has anyone had a toddler with anything similar and if so was it autism?
Im hoping not. .thankyou to anyone that might be able to help.
