This is something I've always been meaning to learn more about. Today is my day to learn. Autism, is a very common disorder. Some say that as many as one in 113 children have this problem. Autism has several common symptoms: Apparent insensitivity to pain, may prefer to be alone, echoes words of common phrases, difficulty interacting with others, inappropriate attachment to any objects, may or may not want to cuddle, inappropriate giggling or laughing, no real fear of dangers. And the list goes on. Not much fun for the person who has Autism, or the family. There are many new treatments available. Catching it when it first appears is the best. As a younger child sometimes responds better to treatment. On the internet there are so many websites devoted to this, good place to start is The Autism Society of America. Good luck with the answers, they are out there... Be patient and ask lots of questions... good help really does exist.
