How old is your child? I had my 3-y/o son (then) screened at Medical City and he had basic assessment and a test provided to him. The screening costs P1,450 and papaschedule muna sa Center for Developmental Pediatrics department.

If your child has failed in their eval, they will recommend a devped for further assessment and evaluation (appointment can take weeks to months wait time) and will give you a referral for an audio brainstem response test to completely rule out any hearing problems.

You may also check out FB groups for support, mostly from US and UK whose mommies have kids with similar developmental issues (specifically late talkers) like Apraxia, MERLD and Hyperlexia fb groups. Unfortunately, wala pa ako nahahanap na support group like them nandito sa atin.

My daughter is 2 1/2 years old and still can't make a conversation. Sobrang kaunti words alam na hindi mo naman maintindihan. Read a lot about autism and some signs can be seen sa daughter ko. I am still hoping she's just delayed on speech.  :'(

Kiddos who are late talkers do not necessarily have autism. And most of the children who were diagnosed with autism or under the the spectrum do overcome their diagnosis.

So don't lose hope! Just be patient with your little one, give him lots of support and understanding. Please read books by Dr. Stephen Camarata/ articles about Apraxia, Mixed Expressive & Responsive Language disorder and Hyperlexia dahil malaking tulong ang parental involvement sa pag-improve ng social and communication skills ng ating mga anak =)

Early intervention is also important. Kaya magpaappointment na din po sa isang developmental pediatrician. Hugs to you, mommies.

Kakatapos lang check-up ng daughter ko with Dr. Conducto sa Philippine Children's Medical Center. Sabi sa diagnosis e may symptoms yung anak ko that suggests Autism Spectrum Disorder. At the age of 4, she reads better than some Grade 1 students. So may hyperlexia daw. She's not good with verbal communication, though. So ayun nirecommend na magoccupational and speech therapy siya. Hirap kasi nasa ibang bansa ako tapos mama ko ang tumitingin sa kanya. Has anyone had any experience similar to this and did your child eventually become okay tapos ang finan diagnosis e wala syang autism? I am hoping kasi na sana macorrect at di sya madiagnose ng autism since migrating kami e. Baka madeny visa. Thanks!

Yung friend ko same situation ng sayo. Mga grandparents ang nagaalaga ng son nila while OFW silang magasawa. It was good na yung grandparents ang regular na nagdadala sa bata sa DevPed for consultations and sa therapy. Na educate ang mga lolo't lola about autism at kung pano ang dapat na pagalaga sa bata. Soon kinuha na rin nila ang bata at magkakasama sa sila ngayon sa Middle East. Hindi reason ang autism kahit physically challenged o disability para ma deny ng visa so don't worry about that.

Autism is a wide spectrum. Maraming mga nagi-improve with early intervention, merong mga nagkakaroon ng regression pag tinigil, merong ok na with their skills and in coping socially after therapy (kaya the earlier you start therapy, the better). For now, take small steps. Ipa OT and Speech Therapy ang bata as recommended by the doctor para magkaroon ng early intervention may autism man o wala. Worry about the final diagnosis later.

Hoping to know her development. Please update us po.
