Im just looking for some useful advice please, basically i have a child who is now 2 and a half who appears to be alot slower developing than other childs, he will only say a handful of words, wont interact with others around him
he could be sat right in front of us and we say his name repeatedly and rairley get a glance back, when is after something it results in alot of screams without expressing what he is wanting
also he cant sit still, and i mean when i say it, he cant sit still, if you try and keep him sat on your lap for example it will be followed by struggles and screams.
its like he lacks communicational skills and it is so hard for him to give you eye contact.
also his mother seems to have noticed that his legs kinda point inwards and also he cant seem to jump.
Just wondered what you guys would do? he has been to the hospital for development checks, but they just seem to say the same thing he is too young to say.
But when you see other childeren around him the same age and younger - you see the massive difference in development and characters.
Please could someone advice :'(
