My son turned 2 last month. He is generally well behaved and we can bring him anywhere i.e. into supermarkets, restaurants etc . He started babbling prior to 8 months and was saying da-da do ba ba . At around 9 months he started getting ear infections and seemed to have 1 after another. At some point between then and now he stopped saying these words but would intermittently say "no",bye bye, his name and is now saying ya to everything and making a shouting noise. A lot of words he said disappeared again
Other than this he is extremely active, jumping on furniture, climbing on tables, loves swings, see saws, being upside down loves loud play areas, trampolines. He spent an hour and half in the childrens jungle gym last week and still went onto trampoline when went home.
His fine motor skills are a problem and he finds it difficult to use a pencil/crayon. He started feeding himself with a spoon and fork lately but finds it difficult to scoop the food etc but can direct it into his mouth.
He does not like having his face/hair washed or teeth brushed and still puts items into his mouth e.g. pencils. He is still drooling at times.
He hits his toys on his hands a lot and jumps up and down.
He is very affectionate and loves hugs. He is a happy wee fellow and likes playing with/beside other children. He smiles and approaches other children and has a good relationship with family members.
I could go on but that's the gist of it. He is referred for early intervention and we are currently trying to get hearing checks but he cant tolerate the plugs in his ears so will have to be sedated. A lot of the sensory integration stuff struck a cord but still worried until I find out what has happened?
