Hello Moms, I have 20 months old boy twins who are behind in their speech development among other things. One of my little guys gets upset when anyone (including myself and my husband- gets to close to him, he closes his eyes to avoid looking at people (even his twin brother). He's very loving and likes active play, but close interactions get him very upset. Has anyone else experience this?

Thank you Laura. I'm trying to get both my little guys evaluated for developmental delays. I've contacted the local EI agency, but right now I'm playing the waiting game. In the meantime I'm worried out of my mind and looking for answers from twin mothers who may have experienced anything similar. Keeping my chin up for a happy future for my guys one way or the other :-)

I learned in my child development class that avoiding eye contact can be a sign of autism. Although I don't agree with labeling a child without good cause, it might be a good idea to look into it a little more.
