He can name almost the entire alphabet!! He recognizes almost all 1-10 numbers. I am sick with worry that he might have autism and some other abnormal behavior. He does smile and has great eye contact. He recognizes his siblings by name and his vocabulary is pretty normal (or a little advanced) for his age. He plays with other toys like trucks, cars, puppets, blocks but not for a long time. He truly prefers to look at the letters and numbers and he can spend a lot of time playing and saying them out loud. He shouts them out wherever we go: grocery store, driving in the car, etc. I haven't mention it to the doctor yet but I will when he has his 18 month check up. Has anyone experience anything similar and what is the outcome? How is your child now? I seriously have lost sleep, appetite, energy over this and keep thinking he might end up with autism. It is very terrifying. Any advice?
