  My 2.3 yr son is showing red flags for autism. We have consulted pediatric neurologist according to whom he has borderline autism. This result is based on observation and no assessment done yet. We have visited Dr. Anjan Bhattacharya's chamber but he did not even observe my child and insisted to join his parental program which is not possible for us as of now. Therefore please suggest me a good developmental pediatrician in Kolkata where the assessment of my son can be done. Some are telling that proper assessment cannot be done before the age of 3 years.  is it so?

Yes we have also heard that with age, the features can be noticed better than at a young age. We are consultating Dr Anindita Chatterjee at peerless . She is having a good chain of therapists who have definitely helped us a lot

Thank you very much for your reply. How old is your child? Have you gone through any assessment like CARS? What will be the right age for such assessment?

SibBhatt 2022-04-25 22:40:54


The doctor did not recommend CARS yet as she is showing very mild symptoms. We visited multiple doctors but no one suggested. But she had a detailed speech assessment. She is 4.4 years old currently

Ok sir. Thank you. Are you doing any kind of therapy like speech, OT etc for her? If you share your experience about such therapies it will be very helpful for me who is very new to such things. Are you doing any other kind of treatment like ayurvedic or homeopathy?

SibBhatt 2022-04-27 00:43:29


Yes we are doing speech,OT and special education. If you need any help you can contact me . All these contacts were provided by Dr.Chatterjee only but yeah if required I can share my experience with you.

Thank you very much for your help and support. Please share your experience with these therapies and have you noticed improvements after such therapies and after how many months can we expect improvements? Are you following any other treatment like homeopathy/ ayurvedic/ biomedical/gfcf diet etc?

24jeet 2022-04-28 12:01:27


Thank you again. We will visit the doctor very soon. Meanwhile it will be very helpful if we can discuss our case and gain some knowledge from you as I was not atall aware about autism and it seems like end of the world for me. I will contact you in whatsapp. Thanks for your help.

Dr. Mary Acharya sits in Fortis, Genesis , is good developmental paediatrician. If possible send your child to play school, regularly take him to parks , minimize (if possible , avoid )  screen time ( T V, mobile, any kind of virtual game). 

SibBhatt 2022-04-28 16:37:17


Yeah sure contact me, will share my experience in details
