first signs of withdrawing

This was Emerson at 16 month showing the first signs of withdrawing. He stopped making eye contact and stopped responding to his name. He was later diagnosed with High Functioning Autism and sensory processing disorder. I posted this video in the hopes that seeing my son's symptoms and how mild seeming they were would help other families. It makes me absolutly hate that old adage "Boys will be boys" :/  He started getting services through Easter seals shortly after this and later received a diagnosis.
