My 2 year old daughter had a speach assesment in december as she cant talk at all,there was alway signs now i know which is through autism but at the time i just thought she was lazy.
she always seemed good as a baby as she never cried. after her feed she liked to be put straight back in her cot,but never liked to be cuddled held just the basics feeding changing bathing,but then back her cot,as she got older she never babbled never could eat of a spoon and still cant!!! never sat up until she was 15 months old and did not walk until she as nearly 2!!!,
she screams all the time i dont know if its because shes hurt her self or playing or what as her tone is always the same,she get frustrated and bite herself and head butts the wall she dont walk out side always goes to sit,she hurts others around her always biting and pinching for no reason and thinks its ok i try to say to her no thats not nice but she switches of goes blank in the face,shes got no fear climbing on to dangerous things touches things tht can harm her and she dont care,playing is another thing she wont interact with anyone else not even her brothers and sisters just always on her own,she always lays down to play with 2 certern toys and balances them on her feet,she got a thing for dvd cases always touching them and again balances them on her feet,
and so many more other little things that dont add up...hand flapping throwing toys all the time throwing her food on the floor and then eating it of the floor never of the plate, crisps tipping them out on to the floor then eating them from the floor.We went to see a consultant who then assesed her for 3 hours getting her to play with thing read a book or look at the picture even took her out side to see what she does and she still did not walk.
now we have to get a blood test done to see if its something to do with the cromozones dna.but already my doctor is getting thing set up for when she starts nursery in jan 2010.
also we are going on a pecs course to find out different way of her communicateing with me.
its long prosess as im still going to all different places for different assesment and its still along way to go,but facing up to fact that my daughter is different to other kids is the biggest step to take.
