Isha I believe it would be too early to reach to any conclusion and would require further examination from an expert. I would advise you to consult your paediatrician regarding the same and take further advise on this.

Thanks for replying to my query Isha. I would like to further clarify few things. Does he seem to cry vilonetly and have an outburst for small things say on switching on or off light button or when u change place of his favorite toy or any other thing? 2. Is covering his ears because of a loud sound which is otherwise a Normal sound say a cooker's whistle or a door bell? 3. Does he make an eye contact with u when u call out his name? 4. Does he play with you and follow instructions? 5. How does he communicate with you and How many words are their in his vocabulary? 6. How does he react to people other than family members? Please reply to each question individually.

Hi Isha! Please answer these questions 1. Does he respond when u call his name?2. does he respond to emotions like a hug, a kiss, taking him in his lap? 3. Does he seem to have emotional outbursts like crying out loud and not being pacified even after all attempts?4. Is he sensitive to sound and light? 5. Does he make repititive movements like flapping his hand, wiggling his fingers in front of eyes ? 6. does he make eye contact with u? 7. Has he reached other milestones appropriate for his age ? Please specify other behaviors as well which u find are unusual. The answer to these questions would help us understand the nature of the problem. Thanks!
