one of the ladies posted a list of autistic type behaviors. many i wasnt aware of..
Toe walking?? Liam walks on his toes all the time.. wirling.. yup.. and he does it on his toes. my friends and family thinks that is neat. I just thought he was just talented :/ lol
He doesnt rock, but he will sit on the couch watching blues clues and bang his head on the back of the couch, fast and repeatly (it's cushioned so it doesnt hurt) i actually tried it.. gave me a headache so not sure how he does it for so long??
when he was a baby, he would head butt or drag his head down everything. he stopped that in favor of the couch behavior.
none of his toys are used for what they are made for, except balls.. he likes anything that spins or rolls. he wont roll a car, but turn it over and spin the wheels.
until a month ago he walked around with his hands over his ears or was flapping at one (like a dog scratchinghis ears) he still sometimes does it, but not constantly.
I guess my point is, I am confused.. :/ He seems smart, minus the not talking. and his behavior doesnt seem overly odd.. well, at least to me.. :/
one minute, i feel like i need to be here, the next, like i am a hypocrite for even joining..
since liam has been born it's been one thing after another... poor baby. i hope that after this is over he doesnt have to see another doctor, but he has taken it like a trooper compared to me..
but then i am dealing with this alone. my hubby doesnt live here (due to his job) and really doesnt want to know
