What an extremely tough call. I will be in a similar situation myself in a couple of years, perhaps I will come back to this thread and evaluate my options the same way you are now. I can totally understand why you wouldn't want to wake a sleeping bear now that she's doing so well academically and s...

Some of these children are heading towards adulthood. I'm hoping things didn't turn out nasty and you had to stop typing. Just a lot of unanswered questions like if Wreck-Gar now is a multi millionaire youtuber? Washi's boys are doing ok? etc. Hi Jon, It;s been about a year I think since I've poste...

Well, the speech pathologist spent almost two hours with him and said she saw no signs that would suggest ASD. 8O So your doctor suggest you take your son for a screening because he's suspecting ASD and your speech pathologist sees no signs whatsoever that would suggest ASD??? That's quite astonish...

The doctor actually said he thought screen time might contribute to the onset of ASD which struck me as odd. And I think the fact that we told him previously that we were letting him use these devices primed him to make this diagnosis possibly. FWIW there’s no history of it in my family that’s been...

Your new information puts things in a different light, however there are some "warning flags". But a person like me will not be able to put a diagnosis on your kid, it need to be a professional to do that and they can absolutely point it out by the age of 20 months. You are telling us a lo...

That doctor will be your hero one day for giving you that information. I have been in your situation and I know exactly where you are heading right now. What you need to do now is prepare by learning as much as you can about communication with your child. I will be straight with you and say that mos...

I'm not sure what kind of answer I want. Increasing autism prevalence makes it sound like it was a virus that is threatening the human race and soon every child will be "damaged". On one hand that kind of answer is good in case there actually is something one can do to prevent people from ...

My son definitely watches too much mindless junk on the internet now. I'm always kicking him off and his father lets him back on. When he does watch something decent/educational he expects me to watch it with him and kind of holds me hostage. "Are you watching Mom? Mom, Mom, Mom, are you watch...

When my son started talking instead of the usual “Mom, Dad, cookie” it was a lot of letters and numbers, then colors and shapes ... so I tried to give meaning to some of it. I decorated a bunch of big empty coffee cans in different colors with numbers and filled them with toys so when he started sc...

Hi, I dropped off because I did get too uncomfortable to share the problems we were/are dealing with. I think there were some issues with how the site was being run at the time (and may well still be) that rubbed me the wrong way too which didn’t help at all. I also developed a new “special interes...

First of all - amazing kid. Very special to see that drawing on the hot air balloon. Thanks to kraftiekortie for his input. To me that line is of the highest dignity as you started out in your own life as a level 2 autistic child and not an asperger kid. (I find it interesting reading your comments ...

A bit disappointing not getting to know the full story on all these amazing kids and parents featuring in this thread. I spent the summer reading a bit every evening and found it really interesting apart from the bit on cricket or rugby (?) which I scrolled through pretty fast (should be football/so...
