Tony isn’t sure how he ended up with a kid who doesn’t talk; the cynics would call it karma he guesses, or maybe the universe thinks it’s funny. It’s one of the first thing that absolutely everyone who meets Peter remarks - wow, he’s quiet, but hey! I guess you talk enough for the two of you, Tony!
(AU: Peter is on the spectrum and nonverbal. This does not make him less of a genius or less of Tony's precious kid.)

Peter was never going to be a normal kid; he was Tony Stark’s son, and with that brought a whole world of responsibility and reputation that was unfairly both a burden and blessing. Normal was never a label Tony could apply to himself even, so it didn’t bother him at first to think of his child as anything but.
But then it became clear that things weren’t adding up with Peter. He started falling short of different markers, different tests. He was only a year old, then two years old. He could walk, but chose to crawl everywhere instead still. He didn’t speak at all. He was in the low percentiles of weight and height for kids his age because they had a hard time getting him to eat and keep it down.
(The kid fic beginning to an AU where Peter is just as brilliant as we all know without ever saying a word.)
