Howdy!

Saw the thread on autistic adults and I was wondering how you can tell if a child or adult is autistic? How is this treated or managed?

I found an article that details some of the symptoms of autism:

* Delayed or unusual speech patterns (many autistic children, for example, memorize video scripts and repeat them word for word with the precise intonation as the TV characters)
* High pitched or flat intonation
* Lack of slang or "kidspeak"
* Difficulty understanding tone of voice and body language as a way of expressing sarcasm, humor, irony, etc.
* Lack of eye contact
* Inability to take another's perspective (to imagine oneself in someone else's shoes)

I perosnally dont have experience but some friends have an autistic child and it is simply heartbreaking to watch sometimes. Although I admire their courage and bravery!

Oblivious to the world most of the time. I think that's an autistic behavior.

Seems to me that lots of kids are getting diagnosed with autism today compared to the old times...
