Dump this doctor--or any doctor that actually responds to your concerns with "your're imagining things". Autism is a spectrum and a child on the mild end (Asperger's) could still behave that way and be on the spectrum.

You could contact your school district's early intervention program; also, you could try a DAN doctor; there may not be anything "wrong" at this point (your child may still be developing in the normal range) but you deserve a doctor that will take your concerns seriously, particularly with your family history.
