I have a 26 month old son. His speech therapist in ID *before we moved to FL* said he could have a mild form of Autism but he needed to be evaluated by an OT as well, which we are going to do. But I wanted to ask opinions here as well.
He is a very picky eater, if he doesnt like a certain food, he will scratch his tongue
He bites(HARD) even when not frustrated and blows random raspberries.
Just now started having a limited vocabulary that consists of "hi" "oggy" (for doggy), "ow" and "wow" He only says HI to the animals and repeats it over and over as well as repeating kisses
He throws violent temper tantrums and sometimes he repeats his sign language for MORE.
Wanders without purpose
Licks random object and puts random objects in his mouth
Doesn't respond to his name alot of the time
Poor eye contact
Stares at "nothing"
likes parts of things like spinning wheels
enjoys stacking cans when he has them
enjoys spinning around
hand flaps in front of his face (mostly when he doesnt want something)
over response to pain
purposely hurts himself
Doesn't quite understand when he is hurting someone
so any advice would be great!!! thanks ↓
