Hi! My son is nearly 5 and he has been diagnosed with global develoment delay, but I am pushing for an autism assessment, because it is just him in every way. Plus his teachers have had a lot of experience in this area and truly believe he is too. He has every characteristic except for self harming. He use to head bang when he was about 2 but it was very rare. He has an appointment soon but I am so terrified im not going to answer things correctly. I also wouldn't have a clue what questions he's going to ask. He has seen one pediatrician 3 times and that was a dead end, but now he is getting older and the signs are becoming more obvious, I'm hoping this time we might be lucky????
Would so love if I could rack all those marvelous brains of yours out there lol If you need any extra info to help answer better will be happy to share whatever i can! Anything you can think of that might help would be SO so appreciated!!! :-)
