Autism spectrum disorder or ASD is one such developmental disability that manifests itself as social and behavioral deficits in the child, as early as 1 year of age. However, if children are not assessed for ASD risk carefully, many behavioral traits can be wrongly diagnosed as signs for ASD. Thus, information is key when observing and recording your child’s early developmental milestones.
REMEMBER, EARLY HELP MAKES A BIG DIFFERENCE TO YOUR CHILD’S DEVELOPMENT
Nayi Disha Resource Centre spoke to Consultant Neuro-developmental Pediatrician Dr.Ajay Sharma about common concerns with regard to spotting and understanding red flags observed during a child’s development. Global developmental delays can be spotted in the early years of life by observing your child’s development with a sharp eye. If you spot any signs that raise concern about your child’s growth then immediately visit your Pediatrician and request for an overall developmental assessment of your child.
