    We need more information to answer the question. You should ask your pediatrician for a referral to a child psychiatrist if you are unsure. Many babies are speech delayed for a variety of reasons. Autism is not the most common reason for speech delays, and speech delay is not the most telling symptom of autism.

    Good luck,

    There are a lot of things that you can look for to help identify autism. Not talking a lot at that age can be something but also can not.

    If you are really concerned talk to your doctor.

    I have some good friends who's daughter is the same age and about as many words. She is not autistic. They have enrolled her into day-care a few days a week to get her into a more social situation to see if that will draw her out a bit and it seems to be helping.

    Do some research on autism.

    All kids don't do things at the same time as others. Some do them later. I have 3 Godchildren & they all started talking late...and they are healthy lil ones. But do some research on autism & if your daughter has other signs of it other than just the talking then I would def. take her to see a doc., but if not then I wouldn't worry to much. She's probably just a late talker & going to be just fine.

    Does she have a hearing problem? At that age my daughter had fought ear infections for a year. We could not clear the fluid up from her eardrums and she was not hearing correctly. At the doctors advice we had ventilation tubes put in her ears. That was about 4 months ago. She now talks like crazy and it back up to age level!

    All babies do things at a different pace. She might just be slow to talk...which in her case may be a normal thing. It's not good to really compare your baby to someone elses...they are all so unique! If I were you, I would take her to her dr or a specialist just to make sure. That way you won't be worrying and if for some reason there would be a problem, you can address it.

    Does Your Baby…

    At 24 Months:

    Do pretend play with you with more than one action, like feeding the doll and then putting the doll to sleep?

    Use and understand at least 50 words?

    Use at least two words together (without imitating or repeating) and in a way that makes sense, like “want juice”?

    Enjoy being next to children of the same age and show interest in playing with them, perhaps giving a toy to another child?

    Look for familiar objects out of sight when asked?

    Autism signs may also include.

    1. repetitive motions like flapping arms.

    2. fixation on repetitive motions like spinning wheels, opening and closing door hinges (for hours at a time.

    3. walking tip toe all the time

    4. not making eye contact

    5. avoiding contact (like hugging)

    6. random constant screaming (that is not communicating anything, like frustration)

    . not showing emotion (like smiling or laughing)

    The 1st thing I would do is have her hearing check.

    I have learned from having 3 kids they all do things at different ages.

    all babies are different. talk to her doctor about it. theres more to autism than people think. could just be speech delay.

    Don't automatically assume that she has a problem. Some kids just take longer to become verbal. Do talk to her doctor, but don't freak out about it either.
