My son is now 4 years and 2 months now. All of his behaviour is very good,be it social indulgence, eye contact , understanding and listenning properly but there are few things which worries me a lot. First at this age he is not able to speak a complete sentence he says "Give chocolotae" instead "Give ME chocolate" He does not use I,me, You, We and all. I went to many Autism knowledge base site and even prepared M-Chat also , he passed M-CHAT but I am not satisfied yet. My finding is that he tries too much effort to speak, some times blows his cheek like a balloon. Where to go? I met with one nuerologist , he says he has mild autism but i do not want to go in wrong direction leads to disaster later. PLEASE HELP
It sounds like your son may have PDD, or a Pervasive Developmental Disorder. This is a little different from autism but has similiar symptoms, but they are different enough to be a seperate diagnosis. The treatments are similar.. medical, environmental and educational support will help your son have the very best potential he can. He doesn't sound too severe from what you said.. maybe everything will be just fine and he's just marching to his own beat right now. Kudos to you for wanting to do the right thing and find out though.. so many people are in denial and it only hurts their children. Best of luck to you.
Seeing a young child go through something like this is never an easy thing. Iâm sorry that your son is having trouble with his speech, but it is good that his other behaviors such as listening and eye contact are more normal. Have you ever heard of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy? Even if he doesnât have Autism, it has the potential to make a tremendous difference in his speech. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is a method of treatment where your body receives oxygen at a pressurized level, flooding parts of the body with oxygen where it may not have been previously reaching. More oxygen creates healthier cells, and healthier cells equals healthier tissues and organs! Multiple studies have been done, with many cases showing significant signs of treatment after sessions. Iâve also included a link to a young boy with Austism, Michael Inclan of Tampa Bay Florida. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy has really made a difference in his life. Iâd love to give you more information if youâre interested.
