Is My Two Year Old Son Showing Signs of Autism?

I feel like my two year old son is slipping away from me, in the mental sense. He was always a happy boy when he was younger he would eat everything and play with his friends and everything. He use to say words like "thank you, I love you, shh, autie, mommy and etc," Over the summer I let him stay with his grandparents house while I take summer courses and they were telling me that he is acting spoiled. I didn't pay to much attentention to that because I know that a kid can tired grandparents. But then when they was saying that he refuse to eat meat, I got worried. That was not like him. When he came back home after summer break he was acting totally different. Everytime I call his name it's as if he could not hear me. He will not make eye contact. He went back to the daycare that he use to go to and owner of the daycare said that I need to get him checked out because he don't play with the other kids no more. He will walk off to a corner and sit and talk to him self. I never witness him do that but everytime i'm with him he don't stay still he just runs everywhere. I would pick him up in the evening and everytime I make dinner he will not eat. I try to tell him to eat but he just doesn't hear me. He doesn't even talk like he use to. He say a few words that he had gotten from the tv but it would only be the sing alongs. I would point at a object and ask him to get it and he would not understand where i'm pointing to or what I am doing. he would walk in the opposit direction and look around for the object while I still would have my fingers pointing at an object that is not even a foot from me. He pushes away from me when I try to hug him or anything. I just need some advice???

doesnt sound like autism to me... sounds more he experienced some kind of trauma.... maybe you should investigate about his experience with the grandparents... also seek for help with a childrens psychologist to get your child evaluated...

I would definately call your local Early Intervention Regional Center to have him evaluated for developmental delays.  A lot of the behaviors you describe are red flags for autism and it is worth getting checked up ASAP.

Good luck!

Do u really thinks so? about the autism signs?
Because My 4 yr was just diagnosed and he has shown the signs for a long time now and they started little by little as he was getting older and more active... Stupid pediatrician just refused to see it at first.. but now we are getting the help we need from our central valley regional center....

I was concerned for Kisha89 in a different kind of way...
concidering that the changes were very sudden...
hmmm.... this is an interesting observation....
something to think about.... :)

I feel your child may benefit from professionals who only work in the field of the Spectrum. (Autism) Many doctors are too busy to notice or take the time for they are booked up, getting their patients in and out as a factory assembly to make the big bucks.
If you are able, try and locate a professionals within a teaching medical school. These are the ones who are trained well and would be most helpful in testing and diagnosing If and what your child may have.
Don't jump into any diagnosis, always get more than one opinion...I believe in the best out of three......then follow up with needed treatment. Don't ever give up.
