reason behind child not being able to look in the eye
1 result(s) of reason behind child not being able to look in the eye
Observe whether your child avoids eye contact with every person or just a few.
If it is with everyone, it better to get your child evaluated by an ENT
specialist. If it is with only a few or with a particular person, talk to your
child and try to understand the reason behind this behaviour. They might have
had bitter experiences with that particular person or they may be scared of
something. In any case, it is better to talk to them and help them if they are
experiencing something bitter. Lack of eye contact is also one of the symptoms
in children with autism. To be sure about this, observe whether your child
listens and follows your commands and instructions. If they do, there is no need
to worry if there are no other autistic symptoms. If your child is not able to
follow what you instruct, it is advisable to get your child assessed for autism
by a clinical psychologist or a psychiatrist.
