Re: I care for an 18 month old that i think is Autistic
Early intervention is the key.
I was a pre-school teacher for 13 years, the 2 and 3 year old group. We noticed problems, we would ease into the problem w/ the parents, not attack.
Most of them had a feeling. If the child would run all day...we would say , energetic little guy huh? and so on.
ease into an early intervention evaluation.
Are there any ways you can mention things in little ways ?
I admire your concern. Dont give up!!

Agreed. But there is a way of being gentle about this, and get her point across. Just thinking of the child, and what I know through my education.

I would think the child's pediatrician would already be aware of this. Does he have regular health care visits?

Does he not respond to you when you call his name......I always heard that was one of the first signs, because at that age they should reconize their name.

I've also noticed the largest denial comes from doctors, nurses, teachers and lawyers. It makes it almost impossible to help the kids.

My childs pediatrician, when I had concerns about my sons hearing.."oh, hes concentrating on other things". I then took my child to a professional audioligist, he was found to have severe hearing loss. Mothers, trust your gut.

Re: I care for an 18 month old that i think is Autistic
I had the same experience as a nanny. When I applied for the job, the mother told me I would be taking care of 5-year-old twins. When I got there, she forgot to mention the autistic 18-month-old boy. I should have known something was wrong when she told me that he took a nap after lunch and I had to lock him in his room.

Or when I went into his room and the window had boards across it where they had nailed boards across the only window in the room.

Or maybe when they told me I had to duct tape his diaper on before he took an nap.

Or maybe when the 5-year-old twins went outside to play on the swingset and I let the 18-month-old out too who promptly ran all the way to the back wooden fence, sat down and ate dirt.

Not to mention when I tried to wipe his shirt off from some food he had spilled on it and he came royally uncorked.

He did not say any words at all.

I forgot to duct tape his diaper on him and he had smeared feces all over the wallpaper and dug into the carpet.

It was the worst nannying job ever. I was relieved when they told me I charged too much and they were going to get a family member to watch those kids for free. That was going to last about 3 days...

If I had to do it again I would tell the mother that the child needed to be evaluated by a specialist, the sooner the better.

It is wrong to do anything else.

Re: I care for an 18 month old that i think is Autistic
I see signs of Autism in this little guy, How do I talk to the parents about it. They are way over protective of him. The mother even searches through the trash to see how many times I have changed his diaper. Somhow I don't think they would take to kindly to me telling them what I think. However I have heard that the earlier they get help, the better. Please help with advice. I am really sad about this.

My son was just diagnosed with HFA. You're right to say even if perfectly normal, there is something "off" about babies with autism.

I think early intervention is key; I think a subtle way of letting them know would be to leave a magazine or newspaper open with an article about autism and maybe check off with a pen some of the symptoms, or underline relevant passages.

Ask if the child is fully up to date on his vaccinations, if so....there is your answer.

He should be walking by 18 months, some talking & should be smiling.

Re: I care for an 18 month old that i think is Autistic
Yo answer a few Questions.I do think they have noticed something is a little off with him. She bought a book I started reading today while he was napping.It is a well written book about development in children Birth to 3 years. I told her that it was an easy read. had problems during pregnancy. bed rest throughout.Only child, but trying to get pregnant again. I really like them,and think she is a nervous mother. I will definatly pray for the right words. I appreciate all those that have helped. And for the childish comments. I feel sorry for you.

So without even knowing anything about this child whatsoever, you've not only decided that it's autism but deduced the cause as well. Truly astounding!

And you wonder why no-one takes you seriously.
Crank.


To the OP, I'm sure if you speak to the parents they'll be more than aware of what their child is like.
Why don't you do that instead of posting about it on a conspiracy forum and risking advice from paranoid delusionists like Mopar?

This isn't the most implausible possibility.
I had an abusive adopted parent in my life and she thought there was something wrong with me because I spoke in a monotone when around her and didn't engage with her. I was fine with the rest of the world - just not her. But of course she assumed it was me, not her, and I got dragged to expert speech therapists and everything else to "fix" me.
Maybe the kid finds OP to be less than ideal.

Re: I care for an 18 month old that i think is Autistic
I have been a teacher and a nanny and you are certainly caught between a rock and a hard place!

Because I am teacher I knew fairly on that my partner's son was not "normal" in much of his behaviour. Being an only child my partner was very over sensitive to any criticism of his son. Whenever I bought up the subject it would end in a massive argument so in the end I shut my mouth!

Fast forward a year and my partner's son starts high school, has a meltdown and the Principal orders testing. Lo and behold he is diagnosed with Aspergers!

You will have to weigh it up carefully. If you bring your concerns into the open the parents may not be able to handle it and you have lost your job.

However you are probably completely right. After working with 100's of children it is usually easy to spot one that is not so normal.

Good luck with whatever you decide to do!

This is exactly what happened to me with my first child - exactly - I had no clue, I just noticed as he became a toddler he was different from other kids, but he had a higher functioning form of autism that was a bit harder to define at that age back in those days. I'd see other people with normal little boys and was baffled at how they could get them to sit or make physical contact, etc. His father and I had to take turns in the parking lot when we went out to eat - one of us chased him around while the other got to eat - you could not confine him in any space without him just bouncing off the walls - and the worst were those little doctors exam rooms at the pediatrician - he is still like that to this day at almost 18 - cannot be confined in one place for too long unless you really occupy or distract him well. He was misdiagnosed with ADHD from ages 6 - 12, which only did more harm than good, poor kid. It is SUCH a relief when you get a correct diagnosis because you can help them SO much more, get proper support for the parents/family, get proper educational assistance for them, and more understanding and less criticism for their different behavior which is neurological, not just being "naughty"

Sometimes kids are just different. OH GOD FORBID YOUR CHILD DOES NOT CONFORM!!!!! Must have been that polio shot! I know twins who didn't speak until the were 3. They both have PhD and one is an ivy league uni professor. Your a babysitter not a doctor. DO your job.

Your child may not have Autism. If you are willing to except it can help your child a lot as he grows and help you understand what is really going on with him and yourself. Your child was inoculated with a microchip. It is highly possible his tiny little mind is having a hard time adjusting to it. He may be suffering from side effects of it. I warn you if you go to any doctor to talk about him possibly being microchip by vaccine, the doctor may deny it call you crazy or even threaten you some how. Doctors many of them have sworn an oath of secrecy not to reveal what is really in those vaccines given to newborns. When a baby is born the doctor without your knowledge before hand may have given the baby a shot, some metabolic test. Which is really tagging the children at birth for mind control through out their entire life. Be patient with him gentle and monitor his behavior for changes as he grows. I am deeply sadden of the hidden truth about all of us being microchip as infants. We all come into this world fighting for our lives as babies into our adult hood and most of us don't even know where at War fighting for our innocence and our souls.

Re: I care for an 18 month old that i think is Autistic
Ask the mother if it is OK with her if you work with her child on age-appropriate goals like walking.

You can tell her that you have noticed that there are certain things, like walking, that are not being done.

DO NOT attempt to diagnose the child. You will lose your job and it will not help the child. A person that I know who did that faced criminal charges as well.

If you are concerned about vaccine damage, you should warn about that as well, something like, "The lump is still there, and he is behind on milestones-THAT is a sign that vaccines need to be slowed-down."
