We expect babies and children to be able to do certain things by certain ages. We know not every child is the same, and also have to take into account things like prematurity. For instance, most babies are pulling up on furniture and attempting to take a first step around their first birthday. If they get to 15-16 months and aren't doing it, we say that's a delayed ...Read more
Is palilalia more often related to tourette's or autism spectrum? My child has asd and multiple motor tics started palilalia 6+ months ago.
Statistics unavailab: Palilalia can occur in both. Reports would implicate tourette's as most common, but it has been reported in autism and asperger's.

20 month old has verba, social, and communication delays. Could this be signs of autism and how to differentiate ASD from aa development delay ?
Social interaction : A few things. One it's important to have a hearing test to rule out hearing impairment. A hallmark of ASD is abnormal social functioning such as preferring not to be held or cuddled. Limited eye contact or interest in conversation. ASD often also presents with delays. Delays alone, however, are less likely to have social dysfunction and are usually more specific. I hope this helps. ...Read more
Not necessarily: Children are very reislient and adaptive. Pretend play will simply be more nonverbal in this case.

Would a sensory integration disorder be a symptom of Asperger's syndrome? my now 11yr old daughter was diagnosed as having an autism spectrum disorder 1yr ago. however when I'm speaking to others about her symptoms the first comment I hear usually is 'oh
Hi, : Hi, concur with dr. Rinker. Aspergers syndrome is an autism spectrum disorder. Autism, is the most impairing of the autism spectrum disorders. Pervasive developmental disorder comes next and children with aspergers are usually the highest functioning of three. Children with autism spectrum disorder usually have sensory overload which includes tactile stimulation. I recommend talking directly with your daughter's psychiatrist about how best to deal with her tactile sensitivity. One quick option is the use of a camisole that is made of smooth or silky material as an undergarment. It is likely to create less friction against the nipples without highlighting just her nipples. Additionally, pulling bandaids off of skin repeatedly could be quite painful - especially in a child who is already sensitive. I hope this is helpful. Take care. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers

What is done about it depends both on the cause and the individual child. For instance, if the delay is because of impaired hearing, then improving the hearing will help. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Could my 3 year old be autistic?he is not yet pottu trained,has speech and language delay passed his hearing test.he throws very violent tempers.
It is hard to say ..: You did not provide enough clinical information. Does this happen in all environments or does he save these behaviors for you specifically.
