As children with autism grow older does their behavior and social skill's get better.

sometimes sometimes not, but probably depends where on the spectrum and which behaviours etc.

I hope that ds1 will get less flitty as he gets older, and a little calmer. If he learns to wait it owuld make the hugest difference (he can manage seconds now, minutes would help).

what sort of behaviours are you thinking about?

Well went out today, and all he did was cover his ear's most of the time, felt so sorry for him. People look at you in such a funny way, i can't help feeling so sad for him.

Also he tends to scream alot even if people are not talking to him, they might be talking to one another. Really hope thing's to change as he get's older it's 2.9 months.

He sounds very sensitive to sounds. I think that often gets a little better. You could look into AIT as well, although my SALT said she read somehting saying that classical music had the same effect! My friend thought that AIT helped her very sound sensitive dd.

Also look at The Listening Program here , click on the box on the left.
Its a lot less intrusive than "real" AIT which scares me a bit!

Ds1's sensitivity to noise seems to have improved over the last 3 years or so. He loves classical music and listens to it on his radio each night at bedtime. It's a wind-up radio so no need to worry about it being on for ages or using up batteries.

Even now though his tolerance levels can go through the floor. He particularly hates the sound of other children singing at school. On a bad day he's allowed to go to another room or sit at the side. On a good day he will sing along,though possibly with his hands over his ears.
