Still worried about Autism
I posted earlier about a child who doesn't walk on it's own or talk, does makes sounds though and sometimes loudly. Anyway. this child is now 21 months old, wants to walk but only if you hold on to hands (both hands) but we can see there is no balance, just stepping kind of quickly and awkwardly. This child does a peculiar thing too. Child lies on back and arches head way back and kind of moves legs to push backward, inching along the floor. Uses feet a lot more than hands. Uses feet to catch balls that are rolled or to move things away from body. Child will not pick up food and eat it, must still be fed by mother. Child is initially fearful of things that most children like swings, slide, even certain toys. Child also while playing with certain toys, draws arms to sides, elbows up and kind of opens and closes hands several times. What do you make of these behaviors?
Child has a neurologist appointment, finally, still a ways off though.
