3-year old with no speech, poor concentration, hyperactivity, little eye contactWe have a delightful 3-year old boy with some mental developmental delay, poor concentration, hyperactivity, and no
speech. He was very difficult to control and had severe hyperactivity, but a few weeks ago, he fell from a 3rd floor
balcony. He suffered only a mild head injury -- 5 stitches. Since the fall, many of his symptoms seem to have
improved by about 50%.
Specialists have seen him for autism (diagnosis = negative), hearing problems (diagnosis = mild problem left ear),
psychiatric issues (social Q = 62), and neurological problems (neurosurgeon said he will probably speak by age of
4), and pediatric issues (diagnosed with ADHD). We still have no overall/integrated assessment of what his condition
is, though, and how to help him.
He was delivered by voluntary C-section; mother was diabetic during pregnancy but has recovered since delivery.
His symptoms currently are:
No speech (though makes many sounds, especially after the fall)
Understands what is being said to him, and uses body language to communicate when he wants something
Little eye contact (improved since fall)
Likes repetitive movements, especially drumming his hands on the table, and watching rotating things like the
Enjoys music and watching TV (music/dance videos)
Little ability to concentrate except on TV or after a lot of physical exertion
Restless. Usually runns from one room/activity to another
Hyperactivity (50% easier to control than before the fall)
Mood is generally happy; he does not get enraged or angry. Sometimes will cry when frustrated, but not too much
Not toilet trained
Irregular meals (snacks constantly)
Even after the fall, seems to exhibit no fear of heights
