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

UPDATE - - ASD Evaluation Tomorrow (Results)

My little one has her ASD evaluation tomorrow morning.  I've kinda put it off, but guess it is time we figure out what all is going on with her.  For the first time going into a developmental appointment, I honestly am not sure what way it is going to go.  Cross your fingers the dev pedi can make a conclusion and weed through her other diagnosis to figure out if she has ASD too.  Could be an interesting morning!!  :)

UPDATE:  Drove an hour there and back for her to take a whole 10 minutes of meeting my daughter to tell me she has ASD.  She'd already had 1 appt with me and been through all her medical/therapy records, school paperwork, teacher and my questionaires.  Quickest diagnosis ever.  She'll write up a report for me to get in 2 weeks.  The problem we are running into is the service she really wants her to have (intensive ABA) we don't have here or within an hour of where we live.  :(  So now I have the dx, but am not sure I can actually do anything more than we have been for her in terms of services.

 I recommend getting in touch with your school district now to get her set up with Special Education (http://www.wrightslaw.com/) services or update them with her new diagnosis. There are services that come with the Autism diagnosis. I also recommend checking out http://www.autismspeaks.org/, http://www.easterseals.com/, http://www.thearc.org/, and http://www.specialolympics.org/.
