my son harvey is 18 months old and has tuberous sclerosis complex, west syndrome, wolff-parkinson-white syndrome and chronic epilepsy. he can't crawl, walk, talk or feed himself. he has only just started being able to sit up for a few minutes un-aided and a few months ago he finally started showing an interest in toys.
lately he has started showing behaviours which i think might be autism. we have been told he has an 80% chance of developing this but no matter how many times i mention these to his peadiatrician and neurologist, they dont seem worried. i know something isnt right.
he rocks obsessively
he won't interact with other children
he's lost all interest in toys except a blue ball.
he shakes his head manically from side to side and cant be distracted from it
he is always in his own little world, playing with his hands infront of his face.
he has started getting upset when in a crowded, noisy or bright place
i think his docs think it is all to do with his other conditions but im not too sure. what do you think? i really need some advice xxx
