Hi ladies i am new here and i just learned my beautiful 3 year old son has mild Autism. I am so lost and confused by this but also i am not surprized by this i knew from the time my son was 10 months old that he was a tad bit diffrent then his older sister. It started with him not babbling or crawling and not sitting up on his own untill he was 14 months old and after he did learn to crawl and sit up he didn't walk untill just befor his second birthday. He hates being around loud nosies and does this thing with his finger's when he get's excited about something.
I was told by his preschool teacher to have him tested because she saw he was just like her son who also has mild autism. He is in special classes to learn to talk better and help his grossmotor skills. I have 4 children and he is my only special need's child.
I guess i just need a little support since my family refuses to admit this and tell me he's just lazy and doesn't want to learn. sorry to ramble on but my head is just a mess right now.
