In brief: Joint Attention

Precedes social communication.
Aba or denver model therapists apply intensive, repetitive behavioral & educational methods to elicit eye contact, a word approximation, sign language or a picture exchange before giving the child a desired object. Use ~ 10 minutes of "screen time" only to reward reciprocal social interactions.Don't anticipate his needs. Insurance companies pay, in most states.

In brief: Autism

I guess this will depend on the cause, associated conditions and severity.
After addressing these issues with a child psychiatrist or psychologist perhaps they should consider speech pathology evaluation for therapy.
