    Social Communication Disorder is a new diagnostic disorder in the DSM. The DSM specifies the criteria for developmental disorders such as Autism and other psych disorders. It's American but it's also used in Australia.

    Trust your gut instinct.

    We are in the process of having DS1 assessed for Autism. I can remember even when he was 9 months old looking up signs of Autism. I always had a feeling something wasn't "right". If you look on my profile and find threads started by me you find one about my DS1 with all his "quirks". My DH's sister is Autistic so I guess I have always been concerned since DS1 started showing some different behaviour.

    As a baby he was so independent. He loved to be facing outwards to see everything (even as a newborn). He slept perfectly in his own cot from the first night at home.

    I would be making a list of everything you notice. I know when I go to the doctors I always seem to forget things.

    They used to think I was crazy too, I had so many doctors (8 I think) tell me that he was fine, he was just a "twin" blah blah. Now he is 4 and 3 months and is starting at the special unit at school, severe speech delay lots of sensory processing disorders.

    My nephew is also autistic, but both kids are just so different from each other. My Nephew is classic, so he looks above your shoulder when talking, won't make eye contact, hated being touched and kissed etc. My DS2 loves a kiss and a hard cuddle (due to the spds) I used to think he was really affectionate, until I found out he was sensory seeking. He loves hanging out with adults, he wants to be friends with adults. He doesn't play with other kids expect his brother, he especially relies on his twin.
