autism

My grandson is 2 years old and does not say a word; he cries alot, loves car toys and the movie Cars; he's always by himself and doesn't play with other kids at the park. At christmas he took all the round ornamets from the tree and made a line on the floor; he would line up his cars in a row and if anyone touches one car he starts yelling like crying but no tears. Now he is starting to hurt himself by banging his head on the floor or on the wall.

I am the mom of two autistic little boys and what you are describibng is pretty commen with autism. You should bring the child to a developmental pediatrician asap...

As for a more immediate solution, for the head banging a good solution is of course to supervise the child at all times, to try to remove him from the situation and if all else fails buy a toddler bike helmet. This will help protect his head. You should also look into  getting a swing this will give him a good source of movement imput. I weighted blanket may assist if he is seeking pressure. You could also get a soft scalp brush and brush his scalp this made help if he is craving sensory imput.
