well after battles and struggles we have a dignosis for our son,
James IS autistic. He had a 3Di or something done and he scored 20+ on all 3 aspects one was higer than 30! this apparently indicates asd at the severe end of the scale, So we begin another journey, one i expect to be full of events, struggles, but much love,
James is 3 yrs old has no speech currently, nor has he ever spoken a word. he has some sensory difficulties and severe learning disabilities. despite all his behavoural problems he is a very loving boy under all that frustration
i would love to hear from others, maybe you have some small piece of advice that can help. somtimes the tiny things really make a difference.
He has been given a place at a special pre-school, and there he will learn PECS and maybe MAKATON
ive heard changing diet can help reduce some autistic features and make life easier for the child, i would be vvery interested in hearing your experiances/advice re diet change, ie wheat diary and gluten free diets and whether anyone has found such a diet change usefull.
