My brother is severely Autistic. If a child has a Developmental Disability I would know it by watching them. Since I have been around it my whole life. The lack of eye contact and repeating behavior make it easy to see someone is Autistic, if you know what you are looking at. Of course I give a pass to a parent with an Autistic child or a child with any developmental disability. I understand what they are dealing with and I give them a lot of credit.
