Any toodler delay in speech is autism or speech delay   Bharani reddy   12/01/2016 03:33 PM  
Toddlers of 2 or 3 yrs not speaking means autism or speech delay?

Anyone of them faced same problem? How you got solved it.

How many people live with the toddler? Do you speak so much? Is the toddler is having more screen time? All the issues contribute to delayed speech. If the speech is delayed, there is no reason conclude it is Autism. Consulting the Pediatrician will give you right answer.

my suggestion is to consult the pediatrician and he will recommend the speech therapist. Therapists will assess better for the age and recommend what to do.

Hi
Bharani
How old is your toddler.
If below 3 you can contact birth to three in Connecticut
Does your toddler respond to his face
Does he point and shows you what he want
Does he follow gestures

Yes even my toddler got evaluated by birth to three. They were not able to judge it becz he is very active ,understands all , plays around but no words.

Thinking to try for speech therapist or consult an autism specialist.

A big question mark and feeling depressed like anything.

My 3yr old was not talking much until she went to daycare. Part of the problem is we don't speak much at home. There should be a lot of talking around her to learn and start talking. I may not be right always but this was my case.

The child will avoid eye contact if its autism. Its better to move to India as soon as possible, where there will be lot of relatives and social interaction.

There is no cure for Autism. The sooner you expose the child to social interactions, the chances of cure are great.
The US medical system will delay and drag on for years and by that time the child will be old and its not easy to cure.
I am speaking from the experiences of a child in my family where the child did not show improvement at all.

Sorry to be negative but you need to be flexible and can come back to US anytime.

Then it's definitely a speechdelay that's it don't worry
It needs some time and then the kid will definitely speak
Autism kids are totally different they won't engage with other kids
Very poor eye contact
Picky eater
They don't even recognize their mom and dad
They don't respond to their name

In my observation the Autism kids will have eye contact and behave normal upto 3 years. Then it will deteriorate fast.
However they dont respond to the names or search for the parents when lost in crowd.

If he is two years then dont worry. My son started to speak in sentences after 2.5 years , after we put him in kids day care.

Hello Bharai,
Which doctor told that your kid have autism?Did they take any assessment like CARS or GARS?.Indian kids are victim of autism label in USA,that's bcoz of cultural difference.As per my understanding 95% autism labaled kids in USA don't have autism.I have couple of questions to ypu.
Did your kid watched or exposed to cartoon programs in TV/mobile/Tab?
If yes its the main reason for delay in speech.There will be delay in expressive language delay.
Speech delay is not autism.Believe me.

Send kid to private preschoolfr 3-4hrs daily. Kids learn fast from other kids nd school. I hv same prob with my first one wen we moved to US, he learned speaking from school. Wen second was born, we had many friends nd kids around so he started speaking early. Plz don't be disturbed, find out some good private school nd m pretty hopeful, ur prob would be solved. Plz don't go fr church schools, they are cheap , I tried them bt private
