Can I ask what her disability is?

I have a dd with a high functioning Autism Spectrum disorder.

Without knowing the diagnosis I can only tell you this:

My husband and I both work with disabled people (he works with children aged 0-3 and I work with adults over 21)

Given what I know about the field, there are soooooo many options to help your family live a normal life.

Check out Early Intervention services while she is still under 3 and LISTEN to what the therapists have to say (one of the biggest problems with EI is that parents don't want to try new techniques).

Look for schools that specialize in special education and Applied Behavior Analysis if needed.  Most school districts will pick up the tab depending on diagnosis.

Also, I have seen many people go from the point where people would look at them and say "aw, he'll never be normal" to the point where they lived in their own apartment, with a job and just had an assistant to drive them where they need to go.

Look up mama, the future is bright for people with disabilities these days!!!
