Hello, my son is 4 1/2 and we as a family live with Autism. He was screened at 4 1/2 yrs old. do to no speech and non verabal. I just wanted to say hi to the other mothers who have children just like me. So hiiiiiii =D
SO WHAT!, I AM AUTISTIC. This saying gives infants , children , young adults , and elderly a chance to say S0 WHAT! I am no different than you......... IT'S time to not label us. It's time to see us as normal as YOU
so far, I have gotten very little responses from anyone on this board. But I'm hoping we can turn that around.
I'm Janelle. I have an 8 year old ADHD son, a 3.5 year old son with developmental delays and multiple signs/symptoms of an Autistic disorder (most likely Aspergers) and a 12 month old red headed daughter.
DS#2 (Daniel) is currently attending preschool 2 days a week thanks to a program called Early Childhood Intervention. He was delayed in speech, cognitive ability, and communication when they evaluated him in Aug 2010. He has come a long way since he entered the program. He still has some signs/symptoms of an Autistic Disorder, but we have yet to have him diagnosed medically because nothing would change with what we are doing, but I long for the confirmation and may be pushing for it this school year.
While I am still new to this realm, I feel unable to answer questions, but wanted to offer you my support.
And say, congrats on the future addition to your family.

If you ladies are game, I'm usually lurking around and would love to participate
I have a daughter with ADD, 12 and a son, who just turned 11 who has aspergers. I have quite a bit of experience with his problems if anyone wants to try me as a sounding board?
It was a long long struggle to even get a diagnosis, but he is in a great spot now, with a great school, and things are going smoothly (as smoothly as they ever are someone so unique!) for the first time in....well...forever really lol

I never knew until that moment how badly it could hurt to lose something you never really had. - Missed Miscarriage at 10 weeks - 3/26/13
