I'm new here. My name is Liz. my son Ethan is 2 1/2 year old. He has been in speech therapy since he was 18 months old and is still behind in language. i"m very happy with his therapist just think he has some extra stuff going on. He also just started OT for his eating problems.
He took forever to get off of baby food, after taking forever to like baby food. Now he seems to be regressing back to his 12 month old eating habits. He has very poor utensil skills and doesn't really understand coloring the way other children his age seem to. Initially his OT is calling is Sensory Processing Disorder, but I really feel like he is more ASD than SPD. He has very little unmimicked speech, a lot of trouble communicating his wants or deciding between object or foods, several other symptoms of ASD.
So here's a question. At what age does imaginitive play develop in a NT boy and what does it look like? I'm used to being around little girls for this age, so I really don't know.
