My 17 month old daughter only points with her index finger occasionally to show things of interest in books and in the environment. She uses her whole hand to point to things she wants/needs. I did an online mchat questionnaire and am considered as this is linked to autism.
Can you tell me why index finger pointing is so important?I have no other concerns about her,she uses 2 word phrases and has about 10 consistent words,great eye contact and imaginative play. She does use her index finger to point and otherwise occasionally but not always.
We are both M.S. CCC-SLPs and fell in love while studying for our degrees. Since then we have done everything together - graduated, worked, and started a family. We spend most of our time with our 4 cute girls and the rest making this site for you.
