sixspot my ds3 did a regressiona lso but I dont know, 'd be surprised- but who knows.

Wipes out some of the AS risk though

sorry new on here so dont know many people how old is ds4 and what does it mean if they start pointing. ds1 is 2.5 and started pointing in dec.grin

misscutandstick Tue 03-Feb-09 12:23:44

actually, my DS5 regressed after pointing too - BUT he also reached ALL his basic milestones late too, and had sensory problems from birth...

so fingers crossed for your DS. [fingers crossed emoticon]

ds3 walkd late actually, but not all kids who regress do I know.

ds4 took first steps at 9 months (OK 2 weeks ago LOL) whioch ismore like ds1 but without the lack of eye contact / distance / no pointing we got from him iyswim.

We celebrate what we can LOL, if he regresses anyway so be it. Better to enjoy than worry.

HH ds4 is 9 months, I have 4 kids 2 of whom are autistic and not pointing can be an indicator of that.

Thats good news!

hungryhippo21 Tue 03-Feb-09 12:34:47

thanks for that peachy, ds2 is 7 months so I suppose I should be looking out for things like that now.

sorry peachy just rereading post didnt say well done to ds4 apologies to you and ds4blush ds2 has stinking cold and big front tooth coming through so up during night and not with it at all.

PeachyBAHonsPRSCertOnRequest Tue 03-Feb-09 14:04:29

Don't be silly HH grin and I know what it's like <<sigh>> LOL

luckylady74 Tue 03-Feb-09 14:11:54

That is such a good sign smile.
My as ds1 can't really manage a point now at 6 yrs - more of a flap! I was thrilledf when my twins started pointing at each other when they were babies.

PeachyBAHonsPRSCertOnRequest Tue 03-Feb-09 14:20:45

ds1 as/ hfa has to be talked through a point at 9 'look along my arms.... now in a straight line...'. It's a skill he needs I think but I douubt it will ever be automatic.
