    Get some mental help for yourself. The child doesn't have autism and is not delayed. He's a NORMAL child and you are over reacting and looking to stick a label on the poor child 

    Not all kids are on the same track and don't do the same things other kids do. 

    Day dreaming is NORMAL. Kids do that a lot. Get used to that

    Not responding is a discipline issue. He has no reason to bother to listen to you since you don't discipline him for it, you just keep calling his name and do nothing else so he has learned to ignore you

    As parents we always know when something isn’t right a wise person sees danger and protects themselves so being in imperfect bodies anything is possible but knowledge is power so no matter what the ending results may be just stay on it early detection the best medicine keep loving your child be patient understanding and don’t assume get answers your child deserves them also he is innocent and precious cherish that don’t give up.

    Ma'am, the fluid in your child's ears will definitely play a part in their everyday functioning. It will affect their balance, their hearing, even their comprehension, as it could have a side effect of a headache making the child not want to bother with thinking bc it might hurt to think. 

    Hmm...this is perplexing. Have you ever thought to pray about this??? I once watched a show where a women's child could only say one word. She got so tired of that same word being said over and over and over again, that she prayed. After she prayed, she came up with the idea to teach her son the word, Healed, Healed, Healed. So her son started saying healed over and over again and she continued to pray. Some time later, her son got healed. A lot of people think miracles were just when Jesus walked the earth, but I think He'd do it again. What do you think?
