    The teacher later said since she doesnt know english properly , what she meant by the words not normal was just his some of these actions and apologised for the mental agony it caused.

    Dont believe in what other people say.Get him evaluated and if needed, get help. People will say that the child will develop on his own etc, but if your mother instinct is that some thing is wrong with your child, get him evaluated. If you wait for too long(when child is 5-7 years), it will be really late

    Do you mean kids with autism or any developmental disability are abnormal.
    All kids are normal.
    I don't like to use words like disability or disorders also.

    If being cunning and crooked is considered normal,it is better not to be.
    As you said a kid has to be taught in a way they can learn.
    Kudos to you for doing the best for ur kid.

    Even I dont like that or did I say anywhere that any child who is differently abled is abnormal or not normal.I dont want to call them even as child with disability but as differently abled. Just because of anyone ofany kind of ability going in a different path than what society has percieved to be "normal" doesnt mean its a disability but "differently abled". I just wrote what the teacher told.Some peoples ignorance make them say statements like that.
