Did your child display symptoms during infancy?
Hi everyone :). I am new as of today. I have 3 kiddos, a NT 5 year old son, a 3.5 year old daughter dx mild PDD-NOS last fall and an 8 month old baby girl - no dx.
My 3.5 yr old daughter displayed some gross motor delays as an infant, but it wasn't until she turned 2 that we suspected something wasn't right when her language/communication was not progressing. She received speech therapy through our state's EI program and is now in our county school speech program. My husband and I are continuing to search for additional services because 1 hour of speech per week is just not enough to achieve the skills she needs for school and social functioning.
Our baby girl is now also displaying some gross motor delays as well as not showing interest in feeding herself finger foods. Her joint attention is also hit or miss (still evolving at this age). We are hoping and praying she is just a laid back baby, but I am afraid she may be following in her sister's footsteps. Of course we are paranoid over her every move or lack there of. The baby will be evaluated by EI for physical therapy next week.
Does anyone have multiple children on the spectrum? Did your child or children show signs in infancy? Any info you can give is gladly welcomed and appreciated. Thank you for your time in advance :)
