 Welcome to the group Evelys. I am the same as you. My ds was dx. July 2012 he will be 3 next month. I am still learning everyday from this great group of women. They have taught me so much and have been great when I just had one of those days

Welcome Evelys-This is such a great place to learn and to share. Everyone here is really supportive and understanding. When my son was first diagnosed I was so sad and the moms here literally helped me through it. There are lots of things you can do for your little guy and this is a great place to get started. Glad to have you, keep posting! XO

Thanks everyone. It means so much to me to have other woman in my shoes helping me get through all of this with Andrew. Hes a brilliant kid . Only he has no verbal communication , yet. He goes to a pre-K program and receives speech therapy but I think that, that just isnt good enough for him. Hes almost 5 in August and I need to get him registered @ our neighborhoods school that actually have a program that works with other kids like Andrew.
