my daughter is 3 years old and still not talking. she know numbers 1 to 20 all the colours almost all everyday use objects, abc as well as colours nicely inside an object. she says a lot of words but not in sentences but i guess sometimes she says a three word sentence, 90% of the time doesnt respond to her name and doesnt have interest in anything. watches cartoons for a short time doesnt really like to play much. most of he time she doesnt understand what we say. a stranger cant figure out what she talks at all. should i be worried about her being an autistic child? PLS HELP

Get her hearing checked, could be something amiss there. She doesn't sound autistic at all. If she can't hear very well she won't show much interest on TV, other people or talking as she won't be able to hear herself or others properly to be able to make sense of it. Hope this helps.

thank sharlene willis for the post.. she is not in the day care. she goes to a pre school from 8 to 11 am on weekdays. she doesnt line up toys at all. ya she recognises almost everyone she knows. but she is having just a hard time with speech and understanding. she even knows how to play dora online games from computer as well as from his daddy's iphone. she loves to play the educational games from his phone .. and also she can almost recognise capital and simple letters ..maybe im worrying too much right? her speech is improving.. sometimes she says three to four word sentences correctly without break .. ya she has eye contact. but she doesnt respond wen i call her name.. most of the time she doesnt look wen i call.. maybe she will grow out of it?
