Quoting ♥ pinkman:" They check hearing at birth, right?"


Hmm they might, I'm honestly not sure. But I would still think that would be a good first step, easy and can at least rule out hearing problems OR a hearing problem just might be the issue. I know several toddlers that were delayed on speech and seemed "autisitic" in some sense but they just had a hearing problem fixed by either tubes in the ears or hearing aide. Worth a shot I'd say

Definitely worth a shot! I do remember them checking my son's hearing at birth but maybe something happened in that time, who knows.

My son was like this almost exactly. He was always his own little person, I am not sure how 'normal' it is as he has aspergers.

I'm not sure if they checked his hearing at birth. They never told me but I remember with my daughter they did tell me she passed the hearing test.



He can hear loud noises and if Mickey Mouse comes on the TV he runs from the other room. Maybe he has selective hearing? I am going to push the pedi to at least understand my worries. So sick of the "he's fine" and "every kid is different". I know they are different, he is beyond different, which is why I'm scared.

I can't offer any advice, but I will keep you and your son in my thoughts. Hopefully you' get some answers soon and can go from there.Hugs :-(.

Follow your instinct mama! I was always told that all kids were different and all that junk but my son was definitely developing differently. I knew there was something about him that was not the same. It got more obvious as he grew and when my daughter was born i saw just how different he was.
He is crazy smart and super cool and he has learned to socialize some. He will always be a little different but as of right now (he is 5) it doesn't bother him :)

my son was the same way, up until about a year ago he didn't really say alot of words (he is about to be 4) they did a whole bunch of tests on him and it came back that he has no autism of any sort. It might be a little early for you to get depressed and worried about it. Just enjoy him while he is a baby and when they test him at 12 months you will know more. Try not to stress too much about it. <3



Oh and also my son wouldn't listen when called because of all the damage his ear infections did to his ears, he started talking alot more once he got ear tubes in. Get his hearing tested as soon as you can just so you can know for sure

I will love him regardless, obviously, but I have a cousin with Autism and I see how hard it is on my aunt and uncle. And of course, how tough it is for my cousin. I'm not sure I worry about things I can't change but I do :(
