My daughter was a late talker. She is 4 now and still is not on a 4 year old level.
She would not respond when her name was called. We thought she had a hearing loss, took her for an ear exam. Nothing.
She couldn't follow directions such as "get your bear"
Seemed to not really care who was around her very much. Aloof.
My daughter has mild autism possibly aspergers which is very high functioning. She is doing much better right now and has been in therapy since she was 18 months. But we are not doing a diagnosis right now..(YES SHOOT ME)
B/c she is getting all the services she can get, whats the point. When it is needed we will find a diagnosis. I mean really it doesnt change anything.
My dd is funny, loving, sweet, cute. She has been able to read since she was 2.5..lol ;) Its not a death sentence in fact, it can be a blessing in disguise ;)
