Everyday is a grace to thank for of having your child with you. Your child is your strength that keeps you going. All seems to be perfect until one day you start noticing something is wrong and that something is about your child. He is not acting normal just like any other child do, the next question that would trigger to your mind is  how do I know if my child has Autism?

Below are some guidelines that would probably help parents mostly on how to determine if your child has an autism. Like a warning or alert  that needs to be seen when a storm is coming. When we know that a storm is coming we often prepared ourselves and  protect our property as much as we could to prevent serious damages that this storm may cause to us.

Autism is like a storm , parents should prepare themselves for anything that would happen to protect their child. Even if a child has  diagnosed  with autism, healing and preventing are the keys for your child’s health and future.

Searching for what may be wrong can be a time of anxiety and uncertainty. It is very important to communicate with your doctor. The following section offers a list of signs or alert that can give you those hint that you need to describe what you are seeing and feeling in interaction with your child. The alerts are identified fall in the three developmental areas that form the core issues of ASD. They are the Communication, Behavioral and Social Ability. Alerts  are as follows;

Communication Alert

  • No babbling by eleven months of Age

  • No simple gestures ( like waving bye-bye) at twelve months

  • No single words by sixteen months

  • No two-word phrases by twenty four months

  • No response when his name is called

  • Loss of any  language or social skills  at any age.

    This is a subject that is clearly very close to your heart. I read this with a great sorrow but also a legitimate hope for the future for both yourself and other parents of this terrible disorder. This is a very important message that all parents should read. Thank you for getting the message out there. I will certainly be passing this onto my friends who have recently become parents.

    1. Thanks a lot Ben, you are right. It is indeed terrible disorder. Just by thinking about my son’s future made me feel so sad. I have no complain to take care of him until he gets older because I love him so much, what I am worried about is when I am no longer by his side. But every time I look at him and smiled at me makes me feel stronger and accept every challenge that this life may bring for us. Thank you for your comment.

    Great article Cris. It’s very important for people to understand that the word “autism” does not mean “stupid”. I see the word “autistic” being thrown around referring to someone who isn’t bright. Let me make this very clear – autism is something very difficult to deal with but rest assured autistic people are some of the smartest and brightest. Many would be surprised from having a conversation with an autistic child or adult. Your guidelines are great. However, there is no way to prevent autism, but there are ways to prepare in order to make the parents life and the child’s life that much easier. Also – everyone remember that it’s autism awareness month!

    Thanks Cris for a great article!

    1. Most of the parents really don’t know what is Autism all about? I was also as a parent did not have knowledge or ideas until I encounter it myself through my son. It was really sad and sometimes very depressing to get into the situations like my family had experienced. Somehow through this website , I could extend my help to many families out there. Parents should visit the National Autism Resources website , this on -line service not only provides items that can help to develop children’s sensory needs but also they provide help in terms of advice and guidance on how to deal with this disorder. Thanks for your comment.

  1. I appreciate so much for your effort in writing this post.

    1. Hello Bobbie,

      Thank you so much for sharing your time by reading some of my articles. I do hope this website will continue providing helpful information pertaining to autism. Have a nice day.
