After watching a tv special regarding autism,I realized that my youngest son,Andrew(21 mo) displays many of the characteristics that were described.I began to suspect he may be autistic.After consulting with two seperate specialists they too think that he displays alot of the mannerisms linked to autism.They were able to do testing with him and see how he acts on a day to day basis,including the head banging and all.He has not been offically diagnosed yet,they could only tell me he is operating at the age equivalent of an 8-10 mo old.I feel devastated,angry,sad and somehoW responsible.Others feel as if I am getting too emotional about this.My question is am I overreacting?? Am I wrong to feel this way??
