Early detection and treatment is so important. My sister still feels guilty because the doctors kept saying there was nothing wrong with my nephew but we all knew something was. So much could have been done for him in the 7 years she argued with the doctors and school system that he wasn't "normal".

He would cry and scream when he had to leave the house, autism plus he couldn't see more than 2 feet in front of his face and no one knew. Would drag his arm along the walls... couldn't see the door ways. Pace in circles or rock when things stressed him out. He still today does that plus suck his thumb if things are really bad.
