Re: parents of autistic children
hugs to you mama! Emma is 7 and we just got a diagnosis -well - it's been spread over the past 9 months. She has tourettes, sensory integration dysfunction and high functioning autism - aspergers. Looking back - she had all the sign from very early on - like from a year old on - but we were kinda blind to it - just thought she was a quirky kid and it would work itself out.
Having a diagnosis is the first great step you can take. Now you can be on your way to helping your baby be better.
I'm glad to see there are a lot of mom's here that deal with the same issues - the tourettes is old hat t us by now - the rest is very new and I know I"ll have a lot of questions too!
