I am a special education teacher who has worked for a year with toddlers on the Autistic spectrum and many years with children who demonstrate behavioral problems.
Recently I have started my own family and have noted characteristics in my own children that are not as severe but have become a concern for me. I find it very difficult to find out information on less severe cases.
My son is 2 and a half, tends to toe walk, drools when excessively when excited, constantly makes loud sounds and tends not to respond when his name is called, he struggles with making the sound "l", "r". and a few others. Sort of typical for a two year old but after working with so many children I notice a difference between him and other kids his age.
My concern is that I watch so many children who demonstrate these type of problems fall under the radar because there is no information for them. They do not fall as a severe case but on the same token it is not typical. What advice can you give me on how to help these type of children.
