My daughter is now 27 months old. She is only speaking a few words here and there and mostly repeats whatever we repeat to her. She grinds her teeth occasionally, walks a bit odd ( like an old lady almost), when she gets mad she flaps her right hand, and she lines her toys up. When we give her a bath she takes all her tub toys and lines them up on the edge of the tub or when she is playing w/ her pretend food & dishes she has to have the plates w/ each having food on them w/ a fork to go w/ each. When she gets angry or frustrated she will flap her right hand. I do not know if this is because she is just frustrated and mad or if it could be a sign on autism. She also likes to carrying stuff around all the time, usually a blanket and a stuff animal or a stuff animal and a book and a sippy cup. She seems to always have her hands full of something. I am so scared after looking up these various things and realizing that she has a lot of symptoms associated w/ autism. She does however hold eye contact, like to be hugged and cuddled, she does not throw temper tantrums really at all, just the regular getting mad if she can't have something. We are not a sceduled family and nothing is a ritual around here and that does not seem to matter to her. She is a great eater and will eat pretty much anything you give her. She does not twirl around or sit alone for long period of times. She can watch a tv show and focus on it. Am I just worrying about these symptoms and not thinking about all the other symptoms she does not have? I am worried and would love any input anyone may have.
