Dx Autism Spectrum: Mateo and His Family Choose a Pathway to Wellness
Mother tells the story of her son Mateo was born vía C-Section at 37 weeks. The baby developed normally reaching milestones until the age of nine months. But then, Mateo lost all meaningful sounds and made no eye contact. Assuming every kid develops at a different pace, and getting no feedback regarding this from his pediatrician, my husband and I decided to let time do its job.
By the age of 18 months, crowds overwhelmed Mateo, he had no words of speech, he did not respond to his name, he made no eye contact and he developed repetitive movements.
