My son was recently at a developmental pediatrician two months ago and he said that my son does not have autism....so has everyone else. My concern is when we are out in public strangers will come up to him and say hi and he won't even look at them or acknowledge them. Today I was in walmart and three different people were trying to get my son to look at them!!!
Here's the tricky part, My son will only acknowledge people he knows like me, my husband, my friends and family and his PT. He responds to his name usually only when I call him (or close family)
Basically he's not social with most people. Is this normal? because it does not seem normal at ALL to me considering when he was a small baby he used to smile at everyone and he looked at everyone. He has cerebral palsy but that was brain damage acquired at birth. has this happened to anyone else?
