My daughter is two years old, and has virtually no communication skills. Her entire expressive vocabulary consists of the words "hi" and "bye," and she does not seem to have developed receptive language skills. She will occasionally respond to her name, but it's less than 20% of the time. I can't do anything through the local school district until the new school year (they only begin screening students during the school year where they are 2 in September). Am I being too paranoid? I was delayed in speaking also... Asperger's... but I had more receptive skills by that age... I just didn't have any reason to talk. She also has other signs of Autism that make me wonder... refusal to make eye contact, difficulty with play, and stimming-like behaviors, loss of vocabulary (she did have the words mama and dada, meow and kitty, and "mi" for milk). I don't want to make too big a deal out of it... as a former SPED teacher, I'm afraid I'm seeing something where something doesn't exist... but at the same time, if there is a problem, I'd rather know sooner than later.
