Children Only Like One Type Of Toy?
Good night, I am Fika, the mother of a 15-month-old child, since my child is 9 months old to now, her favorite toy is a ball. Even when she sleeps, she can be sleepy saying “bal” in Indonesian means ball. Is the behavior reasonable? Does this behavior lead to signs of autism? Please explain. Thank you..

Autism is a brain development disorder that disrupts the ability to communicate and interact with the environment. Thus, children with autism will appear to be unresponsive when called, unable to take part in chats and make chats, often appear quiet and aloof, carry out the same activities over and over and behave like no other normal person. The exact cause is unknown. However, there is a relationship with genetic factors, history of premature birth, history of pregnant women over the age of 40 years and a history of mothers consuming alcohol and certain drugs during pregnancy.
Autism is usually detected from the age of 2 years. Children will appear insensitive to the calls or activities of people around them. However, in some conditions it appears very sensitive to light, noise and environmental changes.
The attitude of a younger brother who likes ball toys cannot be used as a sign that he has symptoms of autism. It is natural for children to have an interest in certain toys. And also a natural thing to make it delirious during sleep.
Mothers can assess how communication and interaction between adek and other families and mothers. If you are in doubt, you can consult a psychiatrist. The doctor will examine the sister.
Thus hopefully useful.
