I am the mother of a 5-year-old child who was diagnosed with a delayed growth issue or borderline autism. My daughter was born with a very good weight and was completely healthy. She did everything right on time like sitting crawling, standing up or walking with support and also teething.
Everything was going perfectly until my daughter turned 1.5 years old. Suddenly, we realised that she has stopped responding to her name, making any kind of eye contact or eating like normal. No matter how many times we kept calling her name, she wouldn’t even bother as if she wasn’t sure that somebody was calling out to her. One of my friends pointed out that by this age, children make proper eye contact and my child is lacking in it, so I should consult a child specialist or psychologist regarding the same.
on her, and finally she was diagnosed with delayed growth syndrome. She was just two numbers away from being autistic.
