Hi Ladies,

I have had concerns about my son since he was 18 months old. He wasn’t pointing, waving and occasionally walking on his toes. I started the process of having him Assessed and while we was waiting he started doing some of these things. However he still showing some red flags. I appreciate any advice as I’m really having a hard time with him at the moment.

He does: -
Point
Waves occasionally
Eye contact
Eats well
Sleeps well
Affectionate
Sometimes imitates
Babbles
Can take instructions such as ‘go get shoes’, ‘bathtime’, ‘bedtime’, ‘put nappy In the bin’.

Does not do:-
Speak
Shared attention
Pretend play
Throws himself on the floor constantly and laughs

Other areas of concern: -
Constantly on the go
Never sits down unless eating
Throws toys and mouths them
Goes from toy to toy.
Responds to Name sometimes

Just really at a loss here. Deep down I’m convinced he’s got a delay or ASD. Other times I feel like he’s NT. Currently on waiting lists x

He sounds abit like what my asd dd was like. She didnt speak at all at 2. I was referred to a paediatrician due to it and she instantly suggested autism. My dd wasnt formally diagnosed till 5 though (my choice.) Have you been waiting long?

Thank you for you’re reply. We are currently waiting on a hearing test which is in November and than we will see the SALT. It just seems to be a lot of waiting around and it’s concerning me as I feel like we are wasting time. Really at a loss of what I can do to speed things up or help him.
