DOES MY CHILD HAVE AUTISM?

0 comments

Hello everyone!

 

You may try out the online tests here to find out if your child might have symptoms similar to ASD.

This is not an official diagnosis for autism.

For an official diagnosis, book an assessment from the various centres here.

Seek advice from your developmental paediatrician if you observe the following:

  • Lack of eye contact

  • Delayed speech or language skills

  • Poor imaginative play

  • Repetitive behaviour

  • Solitary - shows little or no interest in interacting with others

Your paediatrician will not be able to diagnose your child, but he/she will be able to arrange for necessary assessments and work together with a multidisciplinary team of specialists to determine if your child is at risk of autism.

    Hi all, This is a great article written by Jasmine Goh a writer, author, and educator. Based in Singapore and Southeast Asia. She writes about autism-friendly environments that could translate how we reimagine and design the home and city environment. This is one of our highly recommended reads!
