I know this may sound really really intimidating & distressing for you. All I want to do is get some information so that I can give the best available care to my child. Would anyone tell me what sought of signs of ASD did you notice in your kids when they were babies? How did you start with interventions? Did you see much improvement ?
My 6 month old is very different to other babies (including my 5yr old & nephews).
His eye contact is really poor from day 1. (Didn't initiate eye contact till 3 months)
He doesn't respond to us when we call him (responds to other noises though)
Till now, he never followed our gaze
Won't try to get our attention
He can play with his hands for long long time.
Doesn't explore toys with hands (will only chew or suck on them)
Will only feed when sleepy (this started around 3months)
Although, gives us big smile & wiggle with excitement whenever our eyes meet. Keeps looking at my lips when I read a book with him.
I have a paediatrician who has validated my concerns & has referred us to a child psychologist (not available untill feb nxt year). I really wanna start early interventions as they can help re-wire little brains.
Please help me with any sought of information available.
