I can understand your concerns. Since the child is not showing open signs of affection like running towards his parents when they get home, spontaneously reaching out to hug or smile etc, it would be worthwhile to consult his pediatrician to find out if there is a problem. Speech may come with time—it’s yet early to comment on that. Also, if a child is engrossed in something, he may not respond to his name. So, while the possibility of autistic spectrum disorder cannot be ruled out, it is difficult to comment further on net. Only a detailed examination can confirm this. Please consult his pediatrician. Take care!
