i wonder if autism is being over diagnosed? with all the meida attention and sometimes not having a real answer to a problem i wonder if autism is being thrown out there for lack of a more intense exam of some children. dont get me wrong but it is a true concern of mine. i remember yrs ago my sister was convinced that her second child had autism for the first 3 yrs of her life. amanda was just a quiet child is all and she walked and talked late because IMHO my sister never put her down or encouraged her to talk. now she is 20 yrs old and no different then my 20 yr old daughter. i wonder how many kids are misdiagnosed with autism that are in need of treatment of something else and how many children are diagnosed with something other then autism that are autistic and need treatment for autism. medicine is a hit and miss thing sometimes and autism is a tough one. as much as i hate to admit it i spend way too much time around doctors and nurses and i see misdiagnosis all the time from mental problems to physical problems.
