I have heard that autistic children prefer to look sideways, not straight. I have concerns about my childs development for a few reasons. She is 4.5 months. She is more willing to make eye contact if we look at her while standing behind her head and looking down, while she is on her back. (She is thus Rolling her eyes up to look at us). Should we engage her in this manner? Or is this reinforcing whatever behaviors we would like to avoid? Our pediatrician has encouraged a lot of eye contact, facial expressions to encourage engaging with us.
