I have a 3 year 26 days daughter.
She was detected with mild ASD at the age of 2.5 year. Earlier we thought being alone and in job n moreover less social interaction due to covid and all its a speech delay. But her eye contact was also minimal.
After diagnosis, since 5 months we are deliberately putting efforts with her and her speech has improved tremendously. Her "need based" communication has started in 3-4 Word scentences like " I want water, I want to go pee pee, please give me".
2 word scentences are perfect and preferred by her like " open door, close door, frnd house"
Her all physicall milestone were achieved on time.
She is not routine bound.
She gives social smile if she knows a person ( it takes 2-3 meeting or Majorly when PROMPTED).
She eats everything.
Knows all shapes, colour, animal, vegetables, fruits, etc.
Able to make standing line, circle and sleeping line.
Knows and answer basic questions ( but you have to get her eye contact)
(a) name, age
( b) father , mother name
(c) no concept if asked that " this is......." n if it's not then only.
(d) big & small, same & different
(e) understand basic 2 - 3 step commands, like- "bring ....." / "pick up plate and put it in place"/ "call ...."/ sit down...etc.
1. Receptive communication has not started.
2. Eye contact is still 30% only.
3. Inattentive- she was asked to call some person but she will go...n come back half way or not able to express. Or I have to prompt say "didi come"
4. Repeats every scentence what we say to her when she doesn't know or understands ...like u like chocolate? She will repeat " u like chocolate".
Her EEG , BERA all tests were normal but docs says behavirol autism may be there.
Please guide me maam
