17 Month Old Grandson Not Interactive

by Robin

I have a 17 month old grandson. My daughter went to pick him up from daycare yesterday and the teacher told her that my grandson does nothing all day. He will not interact at all. We were confused, because at home he is fine. He puts two and three words together when he speaks, stacks his blocks and kicks them over. He also plays pattie cake and rolls them up. If you tell him to go and get something he will. I am concerned as to why at school he does nothing and will not interact at all. What can we do to help him? He has been at this daycare for 5 months.


Thanks,
Robin

Check for Autism

Dear Robin,

Thanks so much for your question and I understand your concerns. I would like for you to visit my page on Toddler Autism symptoms.

The url is:

Just so that you can rule out autism 100%. I highly recommend that you talk to your grandson's pediatrician as well and explain these concerns. Some forms of autism are social interaction especially in a strange environment. It may also be that he is uncomfortable with the workers at the daycare. It may take him longer to warm up to people. I understand your concern and you should definitely monitor the situation.

So the life of U.S students is very much different than the Asian students. They have facilities of the ukessayservice.biz essay service. They have the technology. They have almost everything which someone needs for getting good education.
