Nathan's Autism Diagnostic Interview (ADI) Part 2: Early Developmental History
Camila, mother of Nathan (ASD), discusses some aspects of his early development as part of her completion of an Autism Diagnostic Interview (ADI), administered by Rebecca Shulman. Camila describes how she recognized that Nathan's development was atypical quite early when he failed to reach certain social milestones such as playing appropiately with toys, though he walked at 12 months without issue.
"He wouldn't play with the toys the right way...He wouldn't play. He wouldn't pick up a toy and play."
