Adorable little Evan was diagnosed with PPD-NOS (Pervasive Developmental Disorder, Not Otherwise Specified) when he was three years old.

The following video features snippets of home videos taken of this sweet little child from ages one to seven years old, with text at the bottom of the screen that explains his various autistic behaviors—from scripting to avoiding eye contact to struggling with communication. As his mom notes, these signs of autism are pretty subtle.

You will probably notice that his older brother is present throughout, and as you will see, he was such a great role model and playmate for Evan! (And oh my goodness, don’t they look like they could be twins at around the two minute mark?!)

What signs of autism did you notice in your child as he or she grew up? How has your child improved over the course of time? Share your story with us in the comments!
