I was just wondering who was familiar with this and if anyone can tell me from my description if they think my son fits this profile.
My son is 29 months old and he has alot of tantrums, over Everything! He isn't really talking yet either. He can say things like juice, name some animals, mommy, daddy, nana, pop, etc. He doesn't say full on sentences yet and he'll just point to things randomly and throw a tantrum. Like he'll point at a wall and go ug, like he wants me to bring the wall to him, then he'll throw a tantrum then when you get his mind of that he moves on to the next unrealistic then and throws another tantrum. During his tantrums he hits himself in the face and bangs his head on the ground. At first the head banging started right after so many vaccines last year. Then I stopped getting them for him and now it seems everytime he gets a fever it starts back up again and stays for a while. He is getting over pneumonia so it is really bad right now. I started him in daycare a few months ago too and they told me he is very shy and keeps to himself and doesn't play with the other kids. He was never like that at home. I also just had another child so I don't know if it is a jealousy thing that is making him regress or a real issue. I don't want to bring it to the dr's attn yet until I have an idea. They just go pill crazy and want to put them on medicine.
Does anyone think that this may be the cause or is it just a normal part of being a toddler with a new sibling. I am so nervous all the time because I have a family member with Aspergers and I am scared that my child might have it or a form of. I don't think it is Aspergers persay that's why I just wanted to know what you think in terms of PDD.
