Dear Aanchal,

I have a son who will be 4 years this June.  He doesn't mingle with all the kids but only with few.  He hesitates a lot and cries also in new situations.  I feel he is afraid of social situations. Sometimes he says inappropriate things in public. I don't want this to be a hindrance in his life and career when he grows up.  And recently I read a lot about autism and aspergers syndrome and am totally confused.  I am staying in Frazer Town.  Can you please tell me where should I take him for evaluation?  If there's something to be done to make him interactive and overcome his fear, I feel it has to be done at the earliest.  Thanks.

personality evolves with time. the traits seen at the age of 4 cannot be projected into future years. period.

as far as any PDD is feared, poor social skills are a small part of PDD, but do not suggest PDD. to rule out, however, you may take him to Turning point (jaynagar), Aurinko (HSR). you may also bring him to me for an informal assessment.

do not go to psychiatrists for an evaluation.
