Diagnosing Autism

Diagnosis of an Autism takes two steps. The first step is developmental screening and surveillance during well-child doctor visits.

Truth about becoming alergic

The more often you eat a food, the more likely you are to become allergic to it.  Breastfeeding, delayed introduction and variety help reduce the risks of food allergies. 

Most kids outgrow their food allergies by the time they are three. Early reactions to foods like tomatoes, milk and soy products tend not to persist.

Other reactions to foods like nuts and shellfish do tend to stick around.

Autism tip

For many kids on the spectrum, routine is very important. Build conversational routines to help encourage language.

Non-verbal connection

In a non-verbal child, try working on animal noises, rather than words. Many children with autism have an affinity for animals, and this can build an emotional connection.
