My son is 3yrs 6mnths. He was more into watching Mickey Mouse in mobile from 1.5yrs till 3yrs. So, he was not speaking other than few words. But, his hearing, motor skills nd other responsiveness etc are very normal. We approached speech therapist at 3yrs & she informed to stop all digi gadgets & cartoons completely nd watch for improvement. We then completely avoided those nd found good improvements in him. He now speaks many words, all alphabets, animal etc, tries to sing songs, spk 2-3 words together nd tries to respond to all communication but with less clarity in words. He has not started phrases nd couldn't clearly tell certain words while trying to form sentence. Unfortunately, we are in a multilingual environment with one language at home, other language outside nd english at school. I am now confused should I wait assuming he will be spking normal in few mnths or by 4yrs else to approach speech therapist for speech therapy. My worry is he doesn't have any symbols of even little ASD, but nowadays any delay in speech or anything like this they immediately put it in the category of ASD nd start giving therapy which might even hinder his development. Somebody can guide me, how to go ahead?

HI Im Interested in joining... I am also on the same boat.. Kindly let me know how about it....my mobile number 9381643409.. my email id email@example.com.
Why dont you send him to a playschool? When he will be around other kids his speech will autometically stimulated. Dont get panicked Use his mother tongue and talk to him as much as you can. I heard eating black pepper can help in speech.
You can introduce him to Etl tdp books they are very good and have a concept running through.. English set dvd are so good that your child starts repeating it.. The Walter is given and it reads for your kid.. It triggers interest for your kid to read by 1st helping him listen any no of times (as for adults we don't have the patience to repeat n no. Of times do we) and repeat which eventually will let him learn, READ and speak.. Call me to 6381397949 if interested..
It creates interest in reading so they have confidence to repeat along with the Walter pen as it fancy them.. Every time the pen repeats the kid will be encouraged to repeat and learn all the more..
Can you please add me to the group my email Id is firstname.lastname@example.org. I am also sailing in the same boat
Hi Lalli 11
My child went through the same situation and has really progressed since. We were in the U.S. that time, took some therapies and shifted to India soon after. Use daily life situations to increase interaction, never assume that the child is not comprehending. Take guidance from your therapist and whatever resources are available. My therapist has helped me a great deal to walk on the path of progress. Never give up and keep trying. Also make the tasks as interesting as possible. What I observed was that the therapist used my child's interests to learn more skills.

currently staying in uk and see some symptoms of autism in my 2.10 months child we have referred to speech therapist by peditration and now asked to get diagnosed for autisum after having 3 sessions with Speech therapist.
Their is huge waiting list for such tests.
Decided to move back to Pune by June.
Kindly suggest best peditration and ASA, OT and speech therapist contact details .
Need support how to move forward...
are you moving to india just for treatment? Autism therapy is much better in U.K. compared to india . Perhaps waiting list is huge because it€™s a govt program . If wait time is just couple of months you better wait .
8/9 months Waiting period to perform only diagnosis test for ASD. Meanwhile planned to visit India for improvement.
