He has been in ST, OT and seeing a DAN! physician since around his second birthday but having a diagnosis is the only way to get the behavioral therapy he needs without paying fully out of pocket. He has already been diagnosed with SPD (hyporesponsive/sensory-seeking) and is non-verbal. At this point I'm more nervous that he *won't* be diagnosed if he's having a good day or doesn't do any of his more "stereotypical" behaviors. My dh thinks I'm crazy for being afraid of him not being labeled but I know in my heart (and have for a year, contrary to dh who's still coming to terms with it) that he has an ASD and that this is a gateway to getting him some help.
Please keep my sweet, beautiful and amazing son and I in your thoughts this morning! I will come back and post this afternoon, on the road to the developmental pediatrician at the moment.
