21 month old not making eye contact

Deepshikha - posted on 09/24/2013 ( 1 mom has responded )




My 21 month old son is not making eye contact and he is also reacting to his name rare. He loves music and sometimes is trying to dance but after listening any sad song or sufi music he starts crying or makes a very sad facial expression. If we talk about toy he loves to play with cars only and mostly watching at the wheels of his moving car for a long time he is being very exited when watching someone playin badminton or cricket. He never points to the object that he wants neither he looks at the object that we are showing . For example if I am trying to show him a cow using my finger he does not look at her. He know how to say bye but he says rare to someone. If we talk about eating habit .. he likes spicy food .. he wants to eat that but never uses his own hands to eat. He is not trying to communicate to us . When he has to go outside or he wants something he is crying or pulling me or making a sound like ttrrrrr. Is this a sign of Otism.

Hi Deepshikha my son never pointed and that is a sign of autism but it does not mean your son is. Just get him checked out as soon as possible, time is everything.
