Hello I am new to the group and new to Aspergers actually. My son just turned 3 and about 6 months ago was diagnosed with sensory processing disorder. After a check up with his ped., the doctor said he actually sounds like he might have Asp. He walks and runs on his toes flaps his hands when he is upset or excited is very obsessed with lines (he lines all of his toys up, loves trains because he can move them and maintain a line etc) He does have problem with moving from one activity to another and we have had the same DVD on repeat for months now. My family is very frustrating because no one sees anything wrong. But as his mother I know in my heart something is "off". He was very delayed in speech but communicates very well now. He is a very picky eater and eats the same thing over and over for weeks at a time. I was unable to have him re-evaluated until the middle of March, so I guess my question is does this seem like Asperger's to any of you? And if so, what if anything can you tell me is in our future and is there anything I can do now to make his life a little easier. There is much more I could probably type but as he is my first child I am not sure what might or might not be relavent so please ask if you have any questions! Thanks in advance!
