We have a 4 ur old dd with pretty severe autism. Her skill set is mostly in the 18-24 month range. We also have a 14 month old ds that is typical. Hitting all the milestones at the right times. It hit me that one day very soon my ds is going to pass dd. Breaks my heart

Hugs but it will be ok. Dd might learn some things from ds. Ik my son has learned a lot from my sd that is smart for a three year old.

We are in the same situation. My son is 4 with ASD, pretty severe. And my dd is almos 3, she's passing him up

DS is also in school. Dd starts next year (preK) and they will only be a grade apart. If DS ever gets held back they'll be in the same grade.

Guess in the long run it doesn't really matter. As long as DS is improving and happy

You are right. Their happiness is what's important :)

I have four year old boy/girl twins. My little boy is very delayed. It's hard sometimes seeing my little girl do things that I know her brother can't do at the same age.

Dd is 10 and behaves like a young teen. Ds is 12 and behaves like a 7 yr old. They look out for each other though and are very close. Dd is very protective of her brother. It truly is like she is the first born as opposed to him. Ds has pdd-nos, ADHD, and other issues.
