I Think My Child is Different

Is Your Child Different?

At ABLE Kids, we believe that early intervention is the most impactful when it comes to Autism. Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a neurodevelopmental disease typically diagnosed during childhood. ASD may change the way your child interacts and communicates. With an early diagnosis and early interventions, symptoms may lessen over time. If you are suspecting that your child may be different, we encourage you to seek testing.

Signs of Autism

You may be able to see some signs of autism in young children. Some signs include:

  • Avoiding or having inability to keep eye contact
  • Does not show emotional facial expressions by 9 months of age
  • Not reciprocating when someone smiles at them
  • Does not notice when others are hurt or upset by 24 months of age
  • Lack of recognition when their name is called

While these symptoms do not guarantee that your child has autism, these are common signs that lead to a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

How to Get Testing

To begin the process of getting your child tested for ASD, you could start with your general practitioner, who may refer you to a specialist in your area. In addition, ABLE Kids has collected additional local autism resources for your family, including local autism testing centers, mentoring & development opportunities, sensory friendly programs and activities, and options for assistance in paying for ABA Therapy services near you.
