i'm starting to worry that my daughter is showing signs of autism, she is 28 months and only has about 4/5 words that she doesn't say well, doesn't play with other children in playgroup, doesn't always respond to her name, although I'm sure she can hear just fine. she likes to do what she wants to do and gets upset, often for no or little reason and can't be consoled. when playing with toys, she's more interested in parts or how its put together, any toy sets or toys of a similar type she arranges neatly. for the most part she seems happy, active, climbing on all furniture. does this sound like i should be concerned? any advice would be much appreciated

Have you spoken to a health visitor or anyone about this? I think that would be my first port of call to see what they say.

hv is coming in a couple of weeks, hopefully she can get a hearing test sorted, could be a hearing prob although i haven't noticed any.
its just worrying that even dd understanding is slow.

I could have wrote your post this is exactly like my dd who is 21/2. Tbh I have been worried about autism since she’s been bout 9 months but my dh has just brushed it of. She’s had a hearing test all ok. We have been referred to speech and language therapy and and are getting referred to somewhere about autism x

Things like asking to be picked up or waving goodbye did not happen here. One diagnosed one on the list.

All toddlers show autistic traits I wouldn't panic too much just yet.
