  • My niece has multiple disabilities. To look at her you would guess Cerebal Palsy and autism. She has never tested as such. She is non-verbal, has OCD, she had seizures from age 4-12 (so there is hope for my son with Epilepsy), hypertonic (low muscle tone) among other things. And she is not potty trained and is 20.

    My oldest was speech delayed. My youngest has Epilepsy and a Chiari I malformation.
