I am looking for some advice/ recommendations regarding my DS who is 2 years 7 months.
DS gets very anxious when we have a party or a large-ish group of people over at home. He gets painfully clingy and doesn't play with anyone. We have to hold him for the duration of the event and he won't eat or drink anything. He is a little better if the event is not at home but still takes him a very long time to feel ready to get off to play/socialise.
He has always been a clingy child with mega separation anxiety from a very young age but has improved tremendously now ( except in group situations).
Now, I would like to see someone professional about this as I can see how anxious he becomes. But I have no idea who: psychologist, behaviourist????
Has anyone had their kids go through this and come out fine with or without intervention??
