Hi. I'm new to the group. My son was diagnosed with autism 1 year ago just before his 3rd birthday. He had some verbal ability but could only label things. He was unable to communicate his wants and needs. Now after much therapy and diet changes there is almost nothing he can't communicate. He's doing amazing! He just turned 4 and is due for vaccines. Has anyone in this similar situation chosen to vaccinate their child after being diagnosed with autism? I'm scared to death to vaccinate him for fear he might lose speech or back slide. But doctors and other people make me scared not to vaccinate him. Any advice?..
