I would like to tell parents ‘not to wait and watch’. Parents must track all the milestones in
all the important functioning areas – Social skills, Communication, Intelligence and Motor
skills.

For example:

  • Whether the baby is interacting as expected?
  • Is the baby talking at the right age?

In the absence of these milestones, I strongly recommend parents to consult their
paediatricians immediately though grandparents or neighbours may take this on the lighterside. Please be very vigilant in monitoring the milestones and consult your paediatrician without waiting anymore or without expecting that everything will be set correct later.
