Hi

I have a 3yr 4month old little girl, who at this stage cannot speak sentences but she can sing many of her nursery rhymns clearly. She will repeat things said to her but does not always follow verbal instruction.

Up until this January she kept to herself when around her peers and has little to zero ability to focus on 1 activity at a time. she avoids group activity at school and at home she throughs tantrums alot for no apparent reason. She also started the habit of taking off her clothes abt a month ago and wont stop. She is not potty trained even though she knows the word potty and has used it a couple of times with assistance.

I am really worried that something might be wrong and need ur expert opinion on what should i do. Should i worry or will she grow out of it?
