Answer for My three year old has a few words but he mostly squeals to get things or pulls me by the hand. I am worried she may be autistic? Could it be she is just taking longer to talk? I am so worried about her. Should I make an appointment and what is the waiting time. Thanks Marie.

Hi Marie. I would advise seeking an assessment at this stage. A play based assessment would provide more information regarding your child’s strengths /weaknesses. I can usually provide an assessment within 2 to 10 days. Feel free to give me a call/email to discuss the matter further. Thanks Frances.
