Confused!!! My son!!
First excuse my english, I hope you will understand my questions (I live in Macedonia, Europe).
My son is 4 years old, since he was two I noticed changes in his behavior. Doctors did not give me a clear diagnosis, is it a PDD or not.
He definitely has sensory problem (mostly perceptive and vestibular) but a lot of autistic like behaviors.
He has poor eye contact, does not respond to his name, and has a lot of stereotyped games that he do (repeatedly press toys that will produce sound and noise, looks at it for a long time). He does not have any pretend play games (like talking on the phone etc.), does not play with other children or respond to them. He spend a lot of time being alone in kindergarten, and shows no interest in other children playing. His speech is poor, he cannot produce full sentences, but will repeat something he hears from me. It is very hard to get his attention on something.
Does any of your children have autistic like symptoms just because of Sensory problems? The thing that confuses me that he did not get diagnosis of pervasive disorder. And in my country sensory integration disorder is completely unrecognized as a diagnosis.
