I need a mom to talk to who has a child who has a bit of a developmental delay....my 2 1/2 year old son is a bit of a late talker- he's doing better now but still not where he should be. He has intervention and an intervention playgroup....but he doesn't do too well there so much so that his coordinator has suggested he may be slightly autistic which is #1 not something I see in him seeing as he's so social and loves everyone and #2 it's something I'm having a hard time coming to terms with because in some instances I feel he could be...just very slightly. He's has melt downs over the tinest things, perfers to run around the room instead of playing with the toys/kids at playgroup and seem to have trouble focusing....although at home its a much different story.
I'm just having a hard time dealing with the delay he has and the fcat that so many other 2 1/2 year olds are leaps and bound ahead of him and I wonder why me....why my son? What did I do wrong?
We don't have the money for the autism screening.....or the cost after deductibles and all...and I don't know what else to do...
