It might be a good idea to start keeping a record of your child and their growth. This can help when the doctor asks you if a certain behavior is new, or when your child started doing a certain thing (like flapping their hands).

Here's what you can do to track behavior changes in your autistic child:

  • Take a short video of your child every 3 months.  Videos can be of anything — your child playing at home, sitting in a therapy session, or joining your family at a big event. 

  • Try to capture new abilities or habits that you think the doctor or therapist might want to know about.

  • Label the recording with their name and the date you took it so you can keep track!
