My son just got diagnosed 2 days b4 the start of the school year. He is 7 yrs old so it's a late diagnoses. They haven't put him on the spectrum yet. I was wondering tho does it just keep getting worse? So far thats how it seems and if he's only 7 yrs old right now and I can barely handle him, what am I going to do when he gets older? I have 2 younger children including a 3 month old who has colic and I just don't have the time to handle him... It makes me feel bad but the only way I can keep him from being mean to his sister when I'm breastfeeding or making messes and getting into things is to put him in his room the whole time. I don't know much and I'm trying to learn so any advice would be helpful!!!
Also, Does anyone think that since he was diagnosed late that it might be worse then if I had it diagnosed earlier??
