Hello, well I was a part of these discussion boards while I was pregnant with my first son. after labor and delivery i was too overwhelmed with everything going on I stopped logging in. I am 15 weeks pregnant and my first baby is 2 going on 3 on August 27. I had a question about something I started noticing with my son. he has been lining up his toys in straight lines. he lines up his cars, blocks, bears, etc. i have heard and read that this could be an early sign of autism. has anyone had the same experience? im not too worried I just wanted to see if anyone else has had similar experiences with their children. thanks!

My daughter does that too. She lines up rocks, books, cards, etc. I have also heard of that link, but I am in no way concerned about my daughter having autism.

Same as the second poster...I think that it is quite normal for toddlers to line things up, my daughter does this frequently, less now than when she was a little younger, closer to 2, she will be 3 in October, but I think that if lining up toys is the only "symptom" that your son is presenting, I wouldn't worry about it at all!

totally normal at this age and normal for us mommies to worry about it too. :-) I asked my parents as teachers rep about it and she calmed my fears quickly. Unless you see other signs that concern you, there is most likely nothing to be concerned about!
