MY SON IS ALMOST 30 MONTHS AND HAS JUST BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH AUTISM. I HAVE STARTED DIETARY STUFF AND WILL BE STARTING ABA IN JULY. IN THE MEANTIME WHAT RUNNING OUT OF WAYS TO TRY TO KEEP HIM ENGAGED DURING THE DAY. ALSO HE WAKES UP AT NIGHT AND BABBLES, LAUGHS AND JUMPS IN HIS CRIB FOR HOURS ON END. HE DOES NOT CRY OR WANT US DURING THESE TIMES. SHOULD I GO IN TO HIM OR AM I JUST ENCOURAGING ANOTHER BAD HABIT? I CAN'T SLEEP DURING THIS ANYWAY. HE DOES NOT DO IT EVERY NIGHT JUST 1-2X WEEK BUT IT SEEMS TO BE INCREASING. HE STILL NAPS DURING DAY. I TRIED TAKING AWAY HIS NAP BUT HAD NO IMPROVEMENT.
HE WAS DOING THIS EVEN BEFORE HE WAS DIAGNOSED AND I HAD CHANGED HIS DIET.

PLEASE ALSO NEED HELP WITH ACTIVITES TO DO WITH HIM I FEEL LKE HE IS REGRESSING MORE EVERYDAY.
