Hi, my name is Jessica and my son Connor is 4. When he was about a year old, Connor was diagnosed with developmental delays and hypotonia(low muscle tone). He has seen a pediatric neurologist, geneticist and GI. None of those doc's could come up with any diagnosis other than the ones I mentioned earlier. Connor has been getting early intervention services(PT, OT, speech therapy and special instruction since he was about 14 months. He did not walk until he was 2 1/2 and he wears orthotics for support on his feet(he also has pronation of his feet). All of the doc's say he is not Downs or CP or even autistic, but I feel some signs point toward some kind of autism. Connor also does not talk yet. He only babbles like a baby. He seems to be very bright and understands when he is spoken to. He can follow directions and he responds to other people very well. It just gets so hard not having any answers. I would love to hear him speak to me. Anyone else here in a similar situation???? Thanks!
