Q. According to my friend he may be an autistic. I am worried but please give me some valuable info? I am worried about my baby who has just completed two years and he cannot speak well like other kids of his age. The most unaccepted thing is that he cannot speak a single word well and he cannot mimic to what I say. According to my friend he may be an autistic. I am worried but please give me some valuable info?

A. A two year baby unable to repeat the words taught to him is a matter of concern. It is too early to diagnose autism at this age as some children gets speech little late. Have patience and watch out for the symptoms for more than six months and if he remains the same, then consult with the doctor for necessary help and support. You can also take some initiative to talk to him because in some cases the kids have developed speech with continuous trial. If he grabs some words from you then it may be a good sign that he may not be autistic.
