I am a mom of a 4 year old boy. He is delayed in his developmental milestones... all of them the last assessment we had about a year ago said he was with in the 6months to 1 year old range. We have been back and fourth with doctors and specialists and not one can tell me what is causing it or if its something he will come out of. They have all teseted him out and its like they have given up on him and see him every 6+ months to see how he is progressing. I have grown in the last 4 years to hate doctors they make you feel like you are stupid! I Have started him on the GFCF diet. I read that it could help autistic children and delayed children, so far I have seen some changes in him, but wether they are a coincadence or not I am unsure.... But I figure the people with the degrees haven't gotten me any where its my turn to help my child! Having a child with special needs is very challenging and an emptional rollercoaster, I am glad that I have my friends Jodi and Sam and My Aunt Tammy..... They pick me up when I am feeling lost and hopeless and all I want to do is cry. Some day I hope to hear the name "MOM" from my son and to see him walk. Those are our goals....small but they will be BIG when accomplished.
