Autism - Support Across the Spectrum Autism - Support Across the Spectrum

My DS goes for his official Autism evaluation this afternoon!!! I'm nervous and ancy, and scared all at the same time. Mostly I just want to know how to see things the way he does, and how to help him, regardless of the diagnosis, I just want to make things easier, and better for him..... so fingers crossed that this will answer alot of our questions and get us on the right track!!!! 



We got through some of the evaluation yesterday, however one of the Doctors that were supposed to be there had the stomach flu so the full evaluation could not be completed. We go back Sat morning to finish up and sit and talk with all the specialists regarding the testing. so we are still playing the waiting game, but I know its finally in the works and that in itself is a huge relief!! As soon as I know the answers to ALL the many, many questions we have, I will be back!! Thank you all so much for the good luckk wishes and prayers!!! It is soo nice to have somewhere to turn for support by others who trully understand and don't just act or pretend like they do when they really have no idea!!!!!!

It really is the beginning of understanding him better and as they say, with knowledge comes power! It is a process and I think we are all learning as we go along. Hope the testing isn't too stressful for your little guy, my son liked it. Thought it was fun and of course he loved the attension :)  xo
