A child in my son's daycare is showing signs of autism. He's 3, but doesn't communicate or look you in the face. He can count, add subtract, multiply, and would run around in circles for hours if she let him.

And he never responds when you call his name. The daycare provider suggested to parents that they might want to get him checked for any medical problems - at first she thought he might have hearing problems. But the father (who is a doctor) refuses. He says he doesn't want his son to be "labeled".

It's so sad because this boy could be getting help now!
