by worried mom
my 2 and a half year old is showing all of these symptoms. he is getting early intervention . but he just started the mouth opening and hand freezing thing. iam very worried and will talk about this to his pediatrician tomorrow. he is very loving with us and plays with us but not with his 4 and a half year old sister.
I am getting his ears checked this week as he had had a lot of ear infections when he was a baby. its so disheartening to hear from the doctors that he is showing signs of autism when he is like such a loving boy at home.he loves to kiss and cuddle all the time. well the good thing is that i spoke to his speech therapist about it and she said that it was just a sensory thing and that his OT can help me with it. but still it worries me a lot and i havent slept properly since i heard about this from his doctor. i dunno how much to trust the doctors . are they making a big deal out it? but none the less iam worried and i want to help him anyways.
I am in NJ. can anybody suggest me a good developmental pediatrician and a neurologist. please please pray for my son and i really wish all you lovely mom's and dad's have a peace of mind soon and ur kids do well in life.
