my son was your neurotypical child, walking on time, eye contact was perfect, talking many words even sometimes putting 2/3 together in a sentence. When he was 5 months he had his vaccines and 2 days later had a seizure. He had a few over the next few weeks and then nothing for months. As I said he started to talk, walk everything was perfect and then suddenly at the age of about 16 months he stopped everything. His eye contact is weak barely there, he has lost all of his language and says no words apart from mum, he seems as though in his own little world, very fussy with food etc. He is now 2 and a half years old and still doesn’t speak only babbles, he still gives very little eye contact and doesn’t like to play with other children. He does show when he’s happy/ sad/ angry and other expression on his face. He shows plenty of signs of autism which had me thinking it was regressive autism however I just find it really confusing that I have videos on my phone of 18 months ago where he is looking me in the eye, posing for pictures and talking to me and now he does none of that.
has anybody been through anything similar ??????
also yes I have had him under the hospital etc however they have lost many of my referrals and we have been waiting 18 months to see a doctor and still no better off!!!!!????
