Autism signs in babyWe have been watching old family videos over the holidays. I found this one really interesting, as looking back on it almost twelve years later, I can definitely see signs of autism in Bailey even though the twins are only around ten weeks old.
His twin sister Natalya is clearly trying to communicate with him, making eye contact, reaching out to him and making happy verbalisations. Bailey makes no eye contact and looks past her, never reciprocating her attempts at communication. As you can see in the video he is always moving his head side to side and appears uncomfortable. He was always seeking movement, and we noticed a huge positive change in him once he was more mobile and started to crawl.
I have Bailey's permission to upload this video. We are hoping that the footage may assist others in looking for early signs of autism, whether it's parents or professionals, so that these children can receive an earlier diagnosis and start the early intervention process.
To see how amazingly awesome he is now please watch his other videos, including this one https://youtu.be/lzRCdfW45wA
