My child is facing same problem. He is 2yrs old. He doesn't follow the instructions what is told. Steer something continuously by walking around it. He doesn't speak any sentence but he knows names of everything. He doesn't do eye contact. He don't know how to play with toys, he loves cars but only interested in seeing it's rotating wheels. He smilies seeing others but don't react on their conversation like hello or bye. But he sing all his rhymes and numbering reciting a b c. Happy to be with books. Active alwz playful(not with toys only alone) Noticing all these first we thought that he is stubborn but know I'm very much tensed seeing his behaviour. Is it the sign of mild autism? Please help guys I'm very much tensed.

There are homeopathic treatment available. But you need to find the right doctor. Occupational therapy aims at making kids understand instructions through various activities

Hi Swapna! A mildly autistic child might face difficulty in socialization,communication and may have inflexible repetitive behaviors. He/ she might not have a peer group, might face difficulty in having an eye contact, might not carry on with a discussion , might like to repeat certain behaviors like repeated movement of a body part, touching the same object again and again,making same repeated sounds, gazing at things for a longer duration, they might repeat a question rather than replying or jump continuously or tiptoe etc. Occupational therapy involves a group of individuals including parents/caregivers, teachers, and experts who might make observations on the child through daily activities and record his/her interaction with the environment. After evaluation they develop a individualized program for yr child, to make him independent and improve their skills at home and in school so that they can respond better to his/her environment. it is advisable to look for experts in this area as the earlier the intervention done the better are the results. Hope this helps!
