hi, my son is 2 in june, he was born at 39 weeks c-section good pregnancy,however when he had his 6 week assessment the dr said that he had poor muscle tone,he couldnt focus. he got an appointment for his eyes at the hospital and had regular check ups and now he has caught up for his age.he had seen a pediatrician for his poor muscle tone and he had a phisiotherapist that came to check his legs he also has other problems as well as digestive problems which he is under dietician for.


he was discharged from the physio wen he was 15 months as he was walking however few months later he started walking on his tip toes and still does now he says 3 words mummy,bag,get. he gets so over excited and giggles like mad he also seems to hold his head resting on his shoulder if that makes sense when he runs, he also had a fit in feb and is under a neurologist and she wanted him to have a brain scan because of the problems he had when younger.

looking at all the info on this site i really am wondering if it could be this or autism (as adhd and autism runs in my family) he never sleeps he lines his toys if theres bits of dirt or food on his fingers he freaks and just so many other little peculiar things please if anyone can help me plz do ps also he has been checked for c.p as well thats come back normal.

Hello! I have a son turning two days from now (july 4). He is on occupational therapy once a week. for two months now. Your child has the same behavioral symptoms as mine. Global developmental delay. I think you consult with a developmental pedia to see if he is GDD or autism. I have been thru so many sleepless nights, worries. Take one day at a time. Help is out there. You can only do so much. Good luck! Important check with developmental pedia for your child. Go from there.

Seek further evaluation

I have worked with children with a variety of disabilities over the past 24 years and what you are describing is similar to some that I have seen. Sensory processing is often a co-occurring concern for children on the autism spectrum. Visual, auditory and tactile input can be soothing or irritating to these children. Your short description of your son would prompt me to find a specialist well versed in the autism spectrum. Since your son is still young, finding an answer now would be very valuable in getting the appropriate therapies. Research has shown that the greatest strides are made before a child turns 5. We also know that boys have a higher rate of being on the spectrum than do girls.

Best of luck in your journey to advocate for your child.

Hello. I have a son who is turning two this july. He has this habit of tilting his head left and right while walking, eating. Haven't heard him even say mom or dad. Just babbles. We have a scheduled check up with a developmental pedia this april 25. we are scared it could be autism. But at this moment, we are hoping for the best. I have placed him on a Gluten Free Casein Free diet and his milk is also GFCF. He has feeding problems, super picky eater. So I had no choice but to give in sometimes. except for the GFCF milk.He has too drink.or else he'll be hungry forever. maybe he gets it so he drinks his milk.except for the food. i guess he knows i don't like seeing him not eating so he gets his way. anyway. good luck.
