  • I have 3 children, my son was diagnosed at 3, he was the first one to be diagnosed, but he's my middle child....my oldest girl was diagnosed 2 weeks later when she was 5...my youngest girl was 3 months....fragile-x is the diagnosis, by the way, autism came a few months later for my two oldest and a few years later for my youngest.

  • My son received his first diagnosis at 2 1/2 months and his latest about a month ago (he's 15). He has a mitochondiral disorder and that is what caused all the other stuff he's been diagnosed with.
