Almost 3 yr old doesn't answer questions and smells EVERYTHING he comes in contact with

He will smell feet, walls, tv stands, you name it he will smell it. Is this a sensory issue and can it be fixed? Also I am just now seeing that when he is asked a question, instead of answering a simple question ..like a yes or no question. He will not answer you or will just walk away like he didn't hear you. He talks all the time and is putting 3 to 4 words together to communicate with you. With what he wants or if something hurts he can tell you that, but if I were to ask him do you want chips or cookies he will either repeat the entire question I have asked or just the last word of what I have asked. I was wondering if this also is a sensory problem. Thank you in advance

RE: 3 year old

Hello! I am a mother to an almost two year old boy. He has no spoken language, walks away and acts as deaf. He was diagnosed with GDD autism not ruled out. He is now having his occupational therapy. I feel for you. My son puts everything in his mouth and he is past teething stage. He is still doing it despite the OT sessions. We are staying positive but it is really hard especially here in the Philippines where money is a problem and everything costs too much. Anyway, i hope everything will turn out very well for you and your 3 year old.
