My daughter has a diagnosis on the autism spectrum- she was diagnosed at 23 months old...
As far as treatment, if your son IS diagnosed with an ASD, look into ABA therapy- my daughter has made SO MUCH progress with ABA- it has really been key in her development/learning!
We started our daughter on the GFCF diet at age 2 also- gluten free/casein free- basically no wheat or dairy- it had almost immediate effects- better eye contact/attention span, etc. I know it does not work for every child, but we decided to give it a shot and are so glad we did.
There is a lot to learn, take it one step at a time and feel free to PM me if you have any questions about any of the things I have mentioned (or anything else!)
