Happiness despite misery is a great victory, I think...
Single coffee loving and making mom to ds, age 12, dd, age 10, dd, age 7, tigress, quinn, black cat, and beatrice the spider. Yeeehawww!!!
He came over for a play date last summer and didn't really engage in play with my daughter too much (although he did love the ball pit we have and they both played in it), just found things he liked by himself. He did display some repetitive behavior ie taking foam letters and numbers one at a time across his face and laying them next to him (all of them), having a fasination with a particular kind of toy (balls), and didn't say too many words yet, just kind of *for lack of a better word* grunted or moaned at times, but he would laugh and was very happy, still is!
My girlfriend remembers back when he was a month or two that his eyes would roll back into his head, and wondered what that was about. She hasn't been able to potty train him yet and he still does't talk much, but is a very happy little boy and very smart! (of course!) There has always been something that made my girlfriend wonder from the beginning about her son and so she got him tested.
I truly believe in trusting your gut or intuition. Your his mom and know him best, so if your concerned do some research about his behavior and go to your doctor with it. My girlfriend has found a wealth of info that has helped her with her son on the web.
Hope this helps...
The three areas that all children on the Autism spectrum will have problem in are:
1) language (this can be social language as with Asperger's- having problems taking turns in conversation, etc, as well as general delays)
2) social interraction (this does not mean that they are necessarily not interested in social interraction, in fact it can mean that they are extremely interested in social interraction, but do it in an unusual way- like a child who think s everyone is his friend)
3) range of interest- having certain subjects that interest them a lot, and not showing interest in other areas. This can be one subject that they are obsessed with, or several main interests.
But I went looking for something to give to someone else and I sort of got led to this link and just in case it missed this forum, I thought I would post it.
Various people have discussed that they got a lot out of the conference.
Anyway, here is the link....
I think you can find out more about the topics and discussions by going to the main organizers.
