Most of you ladies know about my precious Brady...I talk about him all the time:)
In addition to Autism, Brady has Cystic Fibrosis, Asthma, Sinus Disease, Pancreatic Insufficiency, Aarskog Syndrome, 16p Chromosome Duplication, Gastroparesis, Strabismis, Epilepsy, Anaphylactic Allergies, G-tube, & Short Stature.
i have it easy, i just have asd, adhd, odd and pdd. he also has a heart condition, croup, eczma, and a low immune system, and just lately is gaining weight and losing energy, but at least none of it is bad enough to be a severe issue.
Were lucky, just ASD and feeding difficulties. I still think he has IBS or something but the drs say no...
Just tha tone...but that's enough!
My daughter has asd, several food intolerances (I believe a couple of them to be actual allergies but they came back negative when tested) she has loose joints and was diagnosed with mild hypotonia but I don't think she has that anymore.
Just the one, Autism. His doctor keeps talking to me about a formal diagnosis of SPD, but I feel that since him having Autism covers him having sensory issues, I have never pursued getting a formal diagnosis of SPD. So, so far, just Autism Spectrum Disorder.
My son has ASD, SPD, anxiety, anaphylatic food allergies, GI issues, moderate intellectual disability, language/fine motor delays.
My daughter has down syndrome, hearing impaired, is non-verbal, ASD, Benigh Rolandic Epilepsy, instability of her C spine, sleep apnea, way low tone, severe intellectual disability, ENT issues with extremely small passageways, compromised immunity, slow growth, chronic lung disease, global developmental delays in all areas, severe cuteness, sweetness, happiness, and heart melting superpowers to all she meets! Ok, so those last couple may be diagnosed by mama, but I got tired of listing her medical. :)
MY son has ASD, Ulcerative Colitis, Migraine, Anxiety and Depression. When he was first dx'ed the university clinic talked about Non Verbal Learning Disability but I haven't heard about that since. (NLD is where the verbal IQ is much higher than the performance IQ. Very much the case with my son.)
We haven't had an actual diagnosis for DS yet, but are on the waiting list for the evaluation. In the meantime, we are trying out a medicine for ADHD and impulse control. A different therapist said he also has severe anxiety. My sister thinks he might have Aspergers. It's hard to say though until we get that evaluation since so many of the symptoms overlap in different disorders.
