    A friend of mine is starting to think autism with her her 3 year old son. Never talked until 2 yrs old, then just stopped. He is 3.5 now. Just wondering if there is any info here on this topic, and a place for her to start at. Thx, Kathy

    For questions, help, and in getting evaluations, etc we'd be glad to help on the Early Childhood Zone.

    Also, she can check out the Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD) questionnaire on It's not officially diagnostic, but you can print the results and take them to someone who CAN make a professional assessment. At the least, it gives you a way to 'gel' your ideas.

    Otherwise, just post. In practical, day-to-day terms, there are a lot of us dealing with this and we can help.
