My daughter was told by pediatrician that my grandson may be autistic. Well, at 5 years old during checkup at school they said he could not see. So she took him to an eye doctor and fortunately they caught it in time or his brain would not have developed properly. Get your children's eyes checked by two years old. I do not know why this pediatrician did not realize it could be his eyes.
