No parent likes to be told that their child has a problem. But the harsh truth is that 1 in 68 children in the United States have been identified as suffering from an autism spectrum disorder. Though it is not necessary that all children suffering from autism exhibit the same symptoms, some red flags include no eye contact, loss of speech and arching away when picked up.

If your child is diagnosed with autism by the age of 18 months, it may even be possible to reverse the symptoms and rewire the brain through intensive treatment.
