My daughter age 10, was born with PVL, which is tiny spots of damage in the white matter. However, at birth her apcar scores were very good. We didn't know there was a problem until her speech wasn't coming and she walked late at 18mths. She has sensory integration dysfunction (is a huge sensory seeker and has sensitivty to sudden sound), auditory processing disorder, and verbal apraxia.

DS has a tentative William's Syndrome dx and is being watched for also having Marfan Syndrome. In addition, I have Asperger's/HFA and Multiple Sclerosis, and my DH has Marfan and adult ADHD. Whew. The Syndrome Family. We also have one utterly syndromeless child, who is marvelous at dealing with us!

I have Ehlers-Danlos syndrome and was thought to have Marfan until I had tissue testing done at 13.

My 5 yo. ds has a tic disorder. We're not sure at this point if it's transient or chronic.

I realized I haven't updated since June, 2004, and so much has changed since then.

Megan (16) has Tourette's.

Adam (15) has Tourette's, Asperger's, Marfan's, auditory processing disorder, anxiety disorder, learning difficulties.

Emily (8) has Asperger's, Chiari I, tethered cord.

David (6) has Autism, Chiari I (decompressed 2/05), tethered cord (released 8/05).

Sarah (6) has Chiari I (decompressed 7/04 & 2/05), tethered cord (released 2/05).

Isaac (4) has PDD-NOS.

Joshua (21 months) has Spina Bifida (spinal surgeries 3/06 & 4/07), Chiari I (decompressed 4/07 & 10/07), is primarily gtube-fed (since 8/07), wears UCB's to walk, is cathed every 4 hours during the day & is on Prevacid, Zofran, probiotics & Miralax daily.

I had thought I wanted another baby, but since Adam was just diagnosed with Marfan's (his was a random mutation, not directly inherited from dh or me), I'm thinking that I'm done. Having a "normal" child is obviously not in the cards for me.

Sweet Pea is currently diagsnosed as Schizophrenic, and with that comes sensory issues, OCD, and a whole lot of anxiety. She fits on the spectrum as well, were it not for the Schiz. And she's gifted, so teachers don't always believe me when I'm advocating. :

Snapdragon has Aspergers and ODD. Emotionally he is about four years old. But his emotional development seems to be accelerating (relatively speaking) so we'll see.

I've been reading through this thread, and it occurs to me that I'll never post anything if I wait til I get to the end!!

We have Cameron, who is 6.5 yrs old. He was diagnosed at nearly age 5 with autism. He is quite high functioning. Main difficulties include relatively mild echolalia that tends to come out mostly at times of stress, SID that has gotten much better over time, attention difficulties, inappropriate social skills (getting better!), stimming behaviors and safety concerns. That all pales when I think he didn't speak at all until age 3!!

Now.. I'm frustrated with his school. I feel like they're pushing meds but I disagree (did a trial and didn't like side effects). They tend to emphasize the negative rather than the positive.. gah. I could go on. And on.

I'm expecting our second child any time now, due around Jan 15th.. I'll make a separate post of that and ask some q's in the appropriate section. Nice to find this thread though!!

Laura, Mom of Cameron 07/01, Evan 01/08, and Madeline 07/09. Busy, but very happy! :

Hey fellow moms. My third child and only daughter was diagnosed with Kaposiform Hemangioendothelioma at 6 weeks of age. She had dozens of blood transfusions, 20 weeks of chemo, a few months of steroids, and now she's doing really well. Soon we'll be starting with an O.T. to work with her on crawling and stuff since her leg muscles are kind of weak from all the darned prednisone.

been reading the SN threads because I count our family in that category now - my almost 8 month old daughter has a malignant brain tumor - Atypical Teratoid/Rhabdoid Tumor... nasty business, this cancer stuff. No cognitive or developmental delays so far - just lots of special needs on account of the surgery, and chemo, and eventually (hopefully!) radiation and recovery...

Hi, My daughter is 3 months old today however was born 7 weeks early. She was born with Port wine stain that covers her entire face and part of her scalp on the left side. 3 days ago she started having seizures which landed her in a Children's hospital. She was also diagnosed with Sturge Weber Syndrome. I was wondering if there are any other parents dealing with the same issues. Thank you!

My friend Phoebe recommended this to me, and I joined some time back. Just haven't had the chance to introduce myself. Plus, it just seems like a circus when I start explaining all our differences. And all our children. Anyway, here goes:

Josh, nearly 13yo, aspergers, nonverbal learning disorder, sensory integration
Breanna, 10, autism, apraxia, sensory integration
Emily, 9, social anxiety disorder, sensory integration
Rachel, nearly 8yo, and NT
Sam, 6yo, adhd, dermatitus herpetiformus
Dan, 4yo, aspergers, celiac sprue
Avari, 2, and thankful NT, just basically ticked that the world doesn't revolve around her. lol!

I have a 14yo son with childhood onset schizophrenia, he was dx'd at age 6. They are now looking at the 'adult dx' of paranoid schizophrenia. Schizo kids are also on the spectrum, he was originally diagnosed with severe autism at 3. He also has Tourettes, was failure to thrive (he's adopted), OCD, massive sensory issues, communication difficulties etc. as well as attachment disorder. My 17yo, also adopted, has severe attachment disorder, dyslexia, and bipolar. So far my 6yo is neurotypical, and we're due in April with number four.

I saw one other mom with a schizophrenic teen, anyone else? I'm looking for anyone who understands this life!!!!

Talk to you soon

My 17 mo old son (13 mo's corrected) was a micro-preemie. He's doing wonderfully considering where he started. We're dealing mild/moderate delays in his gross and fine motor skills as well as chronic lung disease.

Hi everyone,

My 2 1/2 year old son (never vaccinated) was recently diagnosed with classic autism. He is mostly nonverbal, demanding but very cuddly. He definitely has sensory issues. We haven't started any therapy yet, our choices are severely limited here. We have decided to follow a Son-Rise/Floortime type of approach in the home, but not nearly as intensive. I bought the Bounce DVD's I saw recommended here while lurking. We bought 35 different books we are plowing our way through. We bought the PEC's system, Boardmaker, Greenspan Floortime training dvd's, a series of ABA dvd's (though we decided against that method), and a bunch of other stuff. I am looking for speech therapist, and I would love a music therapist, but I don't think it's likely here. I found a Cranial Sacrial therapist but haven't taken my son there yet. Is anyone else living in latin america with a child on the spectum?
