August 2017 edited August 2017 in Development, communication and behaviour

my 2 year old shows signs of autism but im still not sure .he as not had a diagnosis but the pedeatrition sent me a copy of a letter saying global development delay ,and the speech therapist sent a letter with complex communication disorder on it . he only talks in jargon ,he tip toes and flaps his arms while humming ,stares at his hands all the time ,still eats baby food as no imagination with toys but loves spinning the wheels,doesnt point at anything ,eats paper and smell everything ,but does give eye contact ,thats why im confused ,any advise would be grateful thank you.

Hi all my daughter who's 4 was diagnosed with GDD in oct 2017 there x6 areas shes delayed or marked delay in she had grommets fitted juky 2016 had ear infec for 7mths due to this so had them removed last August, she's due to have hearing aids fitted Monday. She has seen speech language they have offered x4 1hr weekly sessions in school (she's in reception) then closing her case. She has lack of understanding repeats herself constantly wets herself doesn't wipe when used toilet so constantly sore, I'm really struggling with her I also have 3 other children at home all older who don't understand why she can't have a conversation and repeats etc paediatrician & speech have both recommended ed psychologist but school saying they don't know who is paying for the service her teacher now saying she's showing herself as very vulnerable and children are starting to take advantage. Only been in reception since sept and teacher needs to speak to me every eve, whole yr at nursery kept expressing my concerns all fell on deaf ears.....
