Hello I am a mom to an almost 4 yr old boy that does not want to talk. He is potty trained, he opens the fridge and gets out anything he wants, he plays, runs, jumps, and climbs like any other child his age but won't talk. I mean he repeats what he hears and it is perfectly clear, well as clear as other 3 year olds, but he doesn't initiate conversation himself. I had him evaluated by 3 doctors and none of them think it's autism. He likes to be held, he makes eye contact with people that he knows or is interested in, but he won't talk. Sometimes I have to make him talk like if he wants juice I have to make him say give me juice. But I don't know what it is, have any of you experienced this?
