My daughter is 27 months old, she doesn't respond to her name, she started day care this month and she is not happy, she doesnt eat anything at the day care. I took her to pediatrician she told me to get her for hearing test and for speech therapy she doesn't speak much, she just goes on reading abcd and then babbling, i am scared does this signs shows she has autism... please help me as what i should do. I got the appointment for hearing test i will be meeting the doctor soon after that.
She doent have eye contact when some one talks to her, she likes watching tv, as she hears music she comes near the tv, when i sings rhymes she looks at me and she is happy and tries to imitate me. I am very upset by her behavior, it hurts me and she is my first born, she used to stay at home with her grand mother who never taught her anything she was by herself playing and watching tv, she doesnt ask for milk or water when she is thirsty. I will feed her according to the timing, if she wants some thing she tries to take it by herself. Mom's can you please advice if any kids had these concerns and what you did to overcome this problem.
