Children with autism may not reach the same developmental milestones as their peers, or they may demonstrate loss of social or language skills previously developed.

For instance, a 2 year old without autism may show interest in simple games of make-believe. A 4 year old without autism may enjoy engaging in activities with other children. A child with autism may have trouble interacting with others or dislike it altogether.

Children with autism may also engage in repetitive behaviors, have difficulty sleeping, or compulsively eat nonfood items. They may find it hard to thrive without a structured environment or consistent routine.

If your child has autism, you may have to work closely with their teachers to ensure they succeed in the classroom.

Many resources are available to help children with autism as well as their loved ones.

Local support groups can be found through the national nonprofit The Autism Society. The organization Autism Speaks also provides targeted toolkits intended for the parents, siblings, grandparents, and friends of children with autism.

People underestimate how much our diet can help symptoms. Cutting out colors & numbers & eating real food really does wonders!
