Why has my toddler has stopped responding to directions and his name?
My two-year-old son was very attentive and used to respond to directions, until he was 18 months old. In the last six months, I have noticed that he has stopped responding to directions, become highly irritable, does not greet people when asked to, and does not respond to his name. Has his behavior regressed? Is he autistic? Am I just an idiot who is worrying about nothing? Or, am I that idiot who didn't take his child's behavior symptoms seriously?
