Does your child talk and show emotions for a child of his age. Does he interact with others freely. Does he sit and rock.

Reply to 4ren6's Post: does not mumble or scream but he watches a lot of tv and can quote dialogue from movies and cartoons. he has brushed his hands together much like he is dusting off dirt but at a very fast pace since he was about 2. he had to change schools last year and has made no friends at school.

Thanks for answering some but I have asked now 3 times and this is important. Does he speak normal for a child of 10? Does he initiate conversation on his own or if spoken to or is he real quite.

Ma'am I would have him tested for Autism.

http://www.ninds.nih.gov/disorders/autism/detail_autism.htm


There are three distinctive behaviors that characterize autism. Autistic children have difficulties with social interaction, problems with verbal and nonverbal communication, and repetitive behaviors or narrow, obsessive interests. These behaviors can range in impact from mild to disabling.

This is why last last night I continued to ask about his speaking and talking. Your child exhibits 3 of the main conditions for Autism. I was waiting to hear back on the speech.

There are also a number of Subgroups and similar disorders that he may fit into. You need to have him examined and going on 10 years of age is quite a long time to not have already done so.

Another good site to research:

http://www.nimh.nih.gov/publicat/autism.cfm

I urge you to get him to a good pediatric MD within your area to asses and refer you to the best doctor or doctors to give you and your child support.

I wish you and your child the best.

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

Outstanding response time less than 6 minutes. Answered the question professionally and with a great deal of compassion.

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
