So my son is 18months old, he's seriously the sweetest little man ever, he's always had quirks about him, some of it we joked about stemming from me or dad and other we just thought he enjoyed being a "baby" but the older he got I realized he wasn't progressing, well Monday he had his 18 month well check and we took the m-chat and another questionnaire, he is delayed in all areas but mainly speech, which I knew but the dr also said he was "borderline autistic" she gave me a referral for a speech evaluation and told me someone from a early start program would call for home visits but that's it.. She didn't saying else, we did talk about his delays and that's it. I of course googled some stuff and it looks like borderline autistic isn't really something people use, I'm just curious as to how the process goes?? Was I suppose to call someone else or do I just wait for the early start people? I do realize he could be ok and not have autism but I know he's delayed in speech and communication all together I never thought i would have a situation like this but I guess I thought there would be immediate help?? Idk. any advice?clarifications?? anything??
