Thanks for your query. I do understand your concern for your child. It is definitely possible that your child could have developed a neuro/vascular deficit following the fall. Being an autistic child she would have difficulty in expressing the symptoms as well making assessment difficult. Though x-ray is normal, i would suggest you visit a neurologist/orthopaedician for an opinion on the same. Hope you found the information useful.
