my son will be 3 this month. he is globally delayed. we first noticed he was having problems when he was about 6 months. he wasnt reaching his normal milestones like other kids. we took him to his regular ped and they sent him to a neuro. to make a long story short, he has autism and cp tendencies. he has a seizure disorder that we still havent gotten totally under control and he is still way behind on everything. he cant walk, talk, feed himself, plus alot more. what i am writing to say is that i understand and am here if you need to talk.
