Read this book and you might see him described here. He might also be autistic, or have Asperger syndrome, read about those too, but be cautious with early intervention, do the early intervention yourself, spend more time with him, put him to sleep with you in your bed, talk to him, take him on trips and walks, avoid routine, these things can't hurt. I read this book when my child was 2 and not saying one word, not even mama. Now he is 2 and a half and just started talking.
Finally, there's some recognition for the fact that a child can be an autodidact, and nobody at home makes them study anything to 'turn them' into zombies. Finally, there's the suggestion that just because some children don't perform on demand, it doesn't mean that they're unable to. And finally, there's an acknowledgment of the fact that it's bonkers to label 3-year-olds, instead of waiting to see how they develop by themselves in a year's time.Read more ›
He is being assessed and pushed down the road of Aspergers by the professionals. However, I didn't agree with this as how he "performed" during assessments was out of character when he was out of that environment. I quit my job with the aim of focusing on him and finding out how I could help him. Whilst browsing on Amazon for books to help me with his speech and language development, I found this book. I was intrigued with it from the moment I "looked inside".
This book has been a godsend for me. I don't believe my son would be on the cut and clear diagnosis of Einstein Syndrome, but if he was to be labelled this or Autistic, then the former certainly wins hands down. This book has given me a new approach towards my son and I've looked at him in a different light since starting to read it. How I interact with him, deal with his tantrums, process what the professionals say and by and large has made me back up my son instead of doubting is ability to be "normal". Since my approach has changed and I've given my son my time, he is a different child. My mother and mother-in-law who minded him between them for the 3 days I worked hadn't seen him in about 2-3 weeks. They were shocked at his progress and interaction. He has now started playschool 3 days per week which is now pushing him along further and his awareness of other children and desire to play with them has opened up.Read more ›

Good book if you aren't entirely satisfied with the diagnosis given to your late developing child. I found it mostly a book of examples and patterns, but informative all the same.Published on 7 Oct. 2009 by J. Irwin
