Shy and not talking
Hi my son is 21 months old. He is very smart, responds to name, points, conveys his message very well. However, he is not talking. Rarely says any words. He has had ear infections in the past but responds when I say “get your shoes”, “point to the...”. So I know he hears me. He is very slow to warm up to strangers but runs to grandparents etc. I often take him to play dates and he does well with children. He knows a handful of signs and uses them appropriately. I have had two pediatricians tell me he isn’t autistic, and early intervention as well. They start services soon with him. I’m very concerned. I haven't slept or ate a decent meal in months.. full of fear. Any thoughts?
