Hello mums has any of you can help me ,and give me some advise.
My son is 3 years old , started Nurssery since September, but last year his Nurssery teachers told me that he may have speech problems,he only could say one ward which was daddy nothing else, last school year my son couldn't, say mum, didn't react to his name when called, recognised any colours or shapes, didn't know how to compt didn't know any body parts, didn't know any animals or their noise , wasn't singing any Nurssery rhymes and wouldn't interact with any other kids he was just alone in his own world, which really break my heart.
and each day as I went to pick him up the teachers will say how he didn interact with other children's how he never listen when talk too, how he had a behaviour problem because he wouldn't seat during reading or story Times, how he wasn't at target for his age.
I am so sad and disturbed as I couldn't help my little boy then at age 2.
So the Nurssery refferd him to speech therapy, just before school close for the hollidays,
As we waited for his appointment all of suddent he started to count from 1-10 he could point to the exact number in no particular order, he knew all the colours and could recognise them and he developed a fascination for shapes he knows them all, now he got seen by the speech therapist today who said he need behaviour assistance before speech therapy because he doesn't interact with others so it's not important what he knows I am catered😳

Op, this sounds very stressful. It honestly sounds as if your DS is showing some signs of Autism. I'd push for him to be assessed for that as soon as possible because if he IS, then he can benefit from treatment as soon as possible.

Hello Mama. Are you in the UK? If so, I’d go to the GP and push for a referral to a Paeditrician who can asses him. He may also need to be referred for a hearing test.

Let us know how you get on fsmile

It’s good that he’s going to see the Paeditrician. If he hasn’t had a hearing test recently, I’d ask your HV to refer you. At least the you’ll know if hearing is affecting his speech and development.

If you do think it may be Autism like Cheap suggests, you might find this article from the National Autistic Society helpful. They also have a Helpline if you think it might be worth talking through your concerns and what to expect at the appointment with the Paeditrician thanks
