He may be scared of something or uncomfortable of something at birthday parties. It could be the noise, light or any other reason. It is important to understand the reason. You can ask him through a puppet show, story or any creative way as to why he does not lie birthday parties. For example you can make up a story of a boy who does not like and a boy who likes birthday parties and ask him what makes the boy not like birthday parties. You could also ask him to draw a birthday party and see what he draws. Since you say he has minor development delays it would be a good idea to do a physical checkup and ask your paediatrician as well for suggestions. Take care.
