My son behaves as if he don't care about anything. He has no liking, no attachment to any thing. He loves to play, but at same he gets lost in his thoughts.. Gets easily distracted. If we ask questions he will say "I don't know". Or he may run away from you. He will not have eye contact with us. He can speak English very well, but he still don't want to answer ... Could you please help us? Thanks.

Hi, for this you need detail evaluation from a psychiatrist including birth and developmental one. Probably as you enlisted these might be sign of some psychiatric condition like Autism spectrum disorder but we cant say definitely. In Autism child have these symptoms. Usually there is no prior period of unequivocally normal development but,if there is, abnormalities become apparent before the age of 3 years.
There are always qualitative impairments in reciprocal social interaction. These take the form of an inadequate appreciation of socio-emotional cues, as shown by a lack of responses to other people's emotions and/or a lack of modulation of behaviour according to social context; poor use of social signals and a weak integration of social, emotional, and communicative behaviours; and, especially, a lack of socio-emotional reciprocity. Similarly, qualitative impairments in communications are universal.These take the form of a lack of social usage of whatever language skills are present; impairment in make-believe and social imitative play; poor synchrony and lack of reciprocity in conversational interchange; poor flexibility in language expression and a relative lack of creativity and
fantasy in thought processes; lack of emotional response to other people's verbal and nonverbal overtures; impaired use of variations in cadence or emphasis to reflect communicative modulation; and a similar lack of accompanying gesture to provide emphasis or aid meaning in spoken communication.
The condition is also characterized by restricted, repetitive, and
stereotyped patterns of behaviour, interests, and activities. These take the form of a tendency to impose rigidity and routine on a wide range of aspects of day-to day functioning; this usually applies to novel activities as well as to familiar habits and play patterns. In early childhood particularly, there may be specific attachment to unusual, typically non-soft objects.The children may insist on the performance of particular routines in rituals
of a nonfunctional character; there may be stereotyped preoccupations with interests such as dates, routes or timetables; often there are motor stereotypies; a specific interest in nonfunctional elements of objects (such as their smell or feel) is common; and there may be a resistance to changes in routine or in details of the personal environment (such as the movement
of ornaments or furniture in the family home). Sir will be fruitful to visit a psychiatrist and manage accordingly.
Second the below opinion, nevertheless, if it is age appropriate, can you see how much time he gets interacting with other children, adults in play, activities and increase it. You may have to be creative in how you do this.
