Hello everyone! I have a 2 1/2 year old boy who seems to be behind. I'm so frustrated. He has a language delay & says single words & makes lots of sounds & squeals. We attend speech therapy & occupational therapy. He runs & jumps & is very active. He sleeps & eats well & my PAT lady tells me he's gifted due to his problem solving skills. I'm so tired of reading what he "should be able to do". I worry that he's on the autism spectrum because of the language delay & the fact that he still chews on quite a few things (although he's still getting his molars). However my son is very affectionate & has great receptive language when he is selectively hearing. I'm tired of being worried. I just want to be able to love my son & enjoy everyday of his life regardless of whether or not he is or isn't behind. Does anyone else have similar feelings?
