Autism is being diagnosed as early as 6 months. This wasn’t always the case. As with anything, an early diagnosis is always best since it allows for early care, treatment and education.
FamilyAffaires.com Expert Contributors and Co Founders of Just2Moms, Christy Carlson & Debbie Schmidt have sons on the the autism spectrum who are now getting ready to go off to college. Years ago when their children were small there was not the early diagnosis and education that exists today. In today’s video blog, Christy & Debbie are sharing stories from their baby books which in hindsight showed the early signs.
They are sharing their stories in hopes of educating and supporting families who may be struggling or wondering if their child may have autism. Please feel free to reach out to Debbie & Christy by posting your comments below.
