comment Siblings learning differences
+1 for expectations according to talents. Here's a story I use to explain it (to somewhat older kids/folks): Imagine we are all going to hike up this mountain and camp overnight, how should we divide up carrying all the gear? Almost everyone instinctively assumes the stronger ones should carry more gear. It is not only instinctive but the best approach for a successful trip.

comment At what age is autism typically diagnosed?
This answer is correct in the sense that it conforms with the consensus of diagnosing physicians. Before two years diagnosis is difficult, often results in misdiagnosis, and uncommon. However symptoms can be looked for before two. Center for Disease Control Autism resources: cdc.gov/ncbddd/autism/facts.html

Doug, we are way past needing the Dunstan videos. I'll send you mine if you want (if I can find them).
