Q. what can a descrease in communication in an 8 year old be? I thought it was some kind of autism but been told it can't be. so what can it be?? I also think he is afraid to get fibromyalgia like his older sister, maybe that's what keeping him down?

A. decrease in communication can be from soooo many things. but you go straight through to the medical clinical solutions. you know, some 8 year olds stop talking with their parents because they are mad at them. so the question is - how long is it lasted? over 2 weeks? if so- it might be a good idea to take him to a children psychologist.
