Pradeepa! eye contact is a natural milestone that every child attains. It cannot be forced or trained to improve. So. when you say " improve " what are you trying to do ? Kindly specify. In my experience there are a lot of adults also who don't give good eye contact possibly for reasons like low self esteem and other related personality issues.

Priya ! you will have to elaborate on this. Consistency of eye contact with family members and age of your child.

Shivangi! thanks for sharing about your child. When you say your baby does not speak at 2. 5 years of age, does that mean not even a single word ? Not making an eye contact yes is a concern area. Lot of children begin speaking in full 3-4 word sentences late since language development depends on lot of other key factors like how stimulating is the child's enviornment. It's certainly not a bad idea to get a screening test done.
