I am new to Cafemom, DD4, is behind other children her age. I have fears that it may be a form of autism, I don't really understand what is going on with her, she talks, but not clearly, we understand her, but we are used to it. Sometimes when we ask her a question, she will just repeat the question instead of answering it. She is in Head Start this year, but I have no clue what she does all day or how her day went, because she will not tell me. Just looking for other mothers of children this age with same issue. I am in the process of getting her evaluated for speech, but worry that something else is going on here. It breaks my heart and keeps me up at night, she is a beautiful, spirited creative intelligent child, with lots of spunk, humor, and personality, I love her to death, just looking for some support on here. Looking forward to hearing from other moms. Thank you in advance, and for having a place where I can vent:)Answer Question

I have twin boys who are 4. When they were 3.5, I noticed one twin stuttered and the other did not speak complete sentences. I had both boys evaluated by a speech therapist through our school district. Once a week both boys are in a speech class for a hour. Its free! It's amazing on how better they are now talking. I would take your daughter to her peditrition and discuss your concerns regarding Autism, also see if there are any programs your school district offers for speech.
