Signs of Autism
If you are concerned that your child might be exhibiting signs of autism, there are a number of checklists available that can help you determine whether or not to seek further assessment. These checklists are designed to be given by professionals at well baby checkups. We provide links to them for your information only. You can review the M-CHAT (Modified Checklist for Autism in Toddlers ) at http://www.firstsigns.org/downloads/m-chat.PDF. You can also review some reference materials at the American Academy of Pediatrics website at: http://www.aap.org/healthtopics/autism.cfm.
