Is Squeals A Symptom Of Developmental Delay Language 08 Mo
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

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
4-6 words: At 15 months of age we expect a child to have 4-6 words. They generally can follow simple commands, such as 'go get your shoes,' and can point to 2-3 body parts (eyes, nose, ears, belly button, etc.) Of course all children develop at their own pace. But a 16 month old who is not close to meeting these milestones should be evaluated by their doctor. ...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.
Much more tourette's: Also given that for tourette's vocal tics are central to the diagnosis along with motor tics. Vocal tics including palilalia, are not the case for the autism spectrum. By the way, echolalia is more common in the autism spectrum. And remember, the cornerstone for autism spectrum is social awkwardness and this is not a requirement for tourette's. Take care. ...Read more

My son aged 4 years is a case of delayed development, delayed speech, hyperactive. What is all this?
Delayed development: There are many kinds and many underlying causes, but the bottom line is this: a child can have difficulty learning to talk, a child can have difficulty learning to understand, or any combination of both. 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

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 3 more doctor answers
