I am a single mother of a 9 year old that just got digianosed with being on the Autism Spectrum/ Asbergers. My son has has delays since the day he was born. But I seems to not be able to get the answers to what was going on with him. All they would say was it is a specific Learning disitbilty. I have a really good friend that has a son with autism and I have learned alot from her and seeing some of the same signs in my son. So I finally got the school to do the Gars 2 and well that was just a questioniare that I and the teachers filled out.. Neatless to say that test was not correct cause the teachers go by what they see since he has a set schedule in the classroom. So there was a new test that came out called the ADOS. And they Have a Autism team that acually does a test and different things.. This is where I finally got answers to what was going on. I really not good at writing notes or letters so I hope this makes sense. But if any one has any advice for me I would be more then happy to hear it. Like things I could do to help my child out.
