Does she likes lining stuff....
She plays with other kids...
My baby girl love playing pretend....
Her brother has speech delay and his in autistic class he gets speech and ot occupational therapy ....he still doesn't express him self very well but his doing better...it might take a while for your girl to start talking...I put my son in preschool when he was 4 1/2...he didn't say much and he would get really frustrated..... Now his 6 years and his doin much better... He never did any of the things my daughter is doing at this age...so everything my daughter does  amazes  me....
Kids that are autistic tend to mimic sounds and repeat what people say...
They like to line up toys...and taste things that there not supposed to...some are really picky eaters and can't stand loud noises..they tend to cover their ears...has your daughter been diagnose with autisim or is it to early to tell or is just speech delay?

I visited my Pediatrician again and he suggested me to go to psychiatrist for her complete Psycho logic evaluation. I did that and my psychiatrist found after her complete evaluation that she has Expressive Speech Delay and motor coordination is not fully developed. So she referred us to a speech therapist and suggested us few exercises. Do you think that this recommendation is Ok for my daughter........... Pls guide..........
