Hi thanks for sharing this information. I would suggest all the parents who have minute doubt on development of their kid to proactively reach out to the pediatrician or to the child phycologist. It's always better to clear our doubts rather stay in denial. My kid was diagnosed with ADHD he had Speech delays. Now after 6 months of therapy he started talking. So go ahead and be proactive.

My son has been diagnosed with autism. He is 3. 5years. The main problem that I face in him is ue doesn't go to bed easily.. Even if he is sleepy he will play for atleast 2hours on the bed even if it's dark. And the next thing is he doesn't eat at all, this is more stressful for me because he has a rare deficiency called mcad where he is not supposed to be empty stomach for long hours. Could you please suggest mw any techniques in facing these problems

My son is 2yr 9 months... I have read the symptoms. My son repeats everything we say instead of responding... He however points out his needs and wants correctly but when we ask any question he will repeat the question instead of answering.
