My two year old and me played roll and catch the ball today. Ok, he cant catch but he rolled it back and forth and when i kicked it to him, he kicked it to me. Is this autistic? Am i grasping at straws?

That's a good sign. Ds1 had no idea about playing catch. This was partly because of the sensory problem in his hands but also because turn-taking didn't come naturally to him at all. Ds2 can now do this but it works better if he has a cue, eg "Ready, steady, go!"

That is good. I used to roll cars towards DS1 when he was two. He liked it and would scream and laugh but he wouldn't brum them back to me.
