Hi,
Can he sign?Does he point to things that he wants?Does he respond to his name or follow one step directions(like "get your shoes")?

ok first things first take a deep breath this can be normal in some cases does he hang out with other kids his age ie daycare mommy and me if so you could be looking at something a mild as damp his sensors get overloaded with noise when you sit down to play and teach him nix the noise all noise if he isn't around other kids you need to expose him to other kids his age or just a little older they are competitive he will want to do what they do or he could be like my sisters kid when he turned 3 his talking skills just exploded some boys are late bloomers in this my oldest was born at 23 weeks gestation and has ashbergers as well as a compromised immune system so i can not expose him to other kids but he does have a younger brother how is 3 and because i can expose his older brother to germs a cant have my youngest in daycare this has held back his talking skills the few times i can go see family with kids around there age they have improved

Hey,
I know the developmental pediatrician seem to always have huge wait list.My son was dx's w/ "severe" autism when he was 2.
I know there are a ton of other "disorders"(like CP,down syndrome and other genetic things),and like autism they range from mild to severe(I did not know that a few years ago)
But the waiting and not knowing can be maddening at times.
Why do they make parents wait so long?They have got to know that we bug out..lol

The doc he has been seeing since he been born is the primary pd,He just now recommends a devolpmental od,but were on waiting list to see them[theres not too many in DC/MD area] Doctor only says he not showing any traits of austisum, but we know with austium it can be very mild to very severe. I had to get full understanding what does he doctor do all this time,and its pretty much your health doc and if kids showing signs of any issues,they recommend other specialist. So were still waiting. How is your child/children doing?
