If you have noticed potential symptoms of autism in your child, it can be difficult to know when you should speak to your physician about it. It’s best to rely on your instincts as a parent and to call your doctor if you sense any developmental delays in your child. You should also act quickly if your child’s communication skills or social skills seem to regress at all. The earliest months and years in your child’s life are the most critical for development, and this is when you’re most likely to notice the symptoms of autism. The earlier you respond to a developmental delay, the more effective the response is likely to be.
