Unfortunately parents of "normees" have been my biggest pita! DS has always been big for his age so when he's 5 he looks 8 but seems to act 3. Oh yeah, lots of parenting experts out there!! ROFL.

People don't realize what an impact raising an extraordinary kid has on your life. My DH couldn't work during much of DS childhood. I made way more money and somebody had to be home to get him from school or go to school at least once a week. Nevermind our marriage!

I have been lucky to have a group of adult auties who have helped me and educated me every step of the way. I know DS would never be where he is without them. They are my village

So an update on ds, he is still as crazy as always. Throws lots of temper tantrums and hits me when he can't express himself or get his way. It is exhausting. I have another apt with the developmental pediatrician at the autism center in November, however she is the 2nd doctor there who said he doesn't have pddnos because he is social. Course he fits every other single criteria. I have really no clue why they want us back there except maybe to follow up and see if he is getting speech and ot therapy???? They wanted him to have the apraxia diagnosis and he has gotten that twice since we saw them last but that still doesn't explain his behavior. I have had a hard time with his medicaid getting the OT and speech therapies covered thru therapy. They actually had the audacity to call his lack of speech a "fluency disorder." LMAO he can't freekin talk!

Is he completely non-verbal? Does he have a "safe zone" where he can go when he's feeling overwhelmed and yell, stim, punch things, without interference?

Aside from figuring out what caused his meltdowns the best thing I learned was to give him a safe way to release it.

No children with autism, but wondered if anyone used sign language with your children before they learned to speak? As a Sign Language Interpreter, I work with a variety of children that have multiple disabilities.

We used and still use sign language with my 16 year old autisic son. In fact, it is his prefered method of communicating (fastest, always available, etc). He can speak a few words now but is difficlut to understand, so he frequently uses sign and verbal together. I love the Signing Time DVDs. They are a great place to start and not annoying.

We use every method of communication available: PECS, signs, verbal, ProLoQuo2Go and iSign on iPad. It is best to have lots of options.
