  • Has he already been diagnosed or is he going in tomorrow for testing/diagnosis? What was the appointment originally made for?

  • What tests are being done,do you know?
    Is he also going to be tested by a therapist (play observation)?

  • a million questions
    about your pregnancy
    when did he roll over, walk etc
    does he have SPD issues- picky eater, clothing, sounds , sights
    what are his tantrums like

    assume doc will do some testing, this can look like play for your child, and doc interacts and takes notes
    may be asked to stack blocks, lace cards, stuff like this
    doc may call out his name during this 'play' to see how many times he reacts to his name

    at least this was what it was like when i took mine - but mine was a PhD
    assume pretty much the same
    unless you are having some scans taken of his head/brain???

  • also check out feindgold elimination diet -

    it is not hte gfcf diet, it is elimination of certain chemicals that are in processed food in the US
    i do this with my child

    and has HUGE results

    also, if speech dely, take out cows milk for a week, IF this is factor, you will see result sin 3 days
    this was a chance thing with me, mine had flu, took out milk, and three days later she was putting two words together- this was HUGE improvement! it might not be an issue, but worth a try. sub. almond or rice (i do almond) not soy, because if cows is issue, soy not good sub

  • oh, and cows milk out, cleared her constant runny nose, and her poops got nice in the middle, no more runny or too hard
    the milk out (cows) was very quick result

    the dues and other junk, was not as quick, but when she gets dyes by accident now, her autism went from mild to severe
    i think it takes longer for the chemicals to get out of brain tissue. scientist really do not know how long it takes to get out of human brains

    i swear by this diet, just ask the regulars on
    post about it all the time

    also, i used to be on meds for migraines, but with no dyes, i went 4 months with no migraines, then tested by eating crap food, in day i got 2.5 day migraine- never ate that crap again
