My son is 2 years and 4 months old. he has had seizures since he was 3 months and still doesn't talk much. his little sister is 12 months old and says about half of the words he says. his pediatricain has sent him to speech therapy (on top of all the other doctors we;ve seen..) and everything and a couple weeks back we went to a devlopmental therapist, i didn't think it would go anywhere just another "he's smart but some kids are just slow to talk" but no... it was worse. she said she thinks he has autisum. now today we're going for a test to see if he is infact autistic or not. I'm so scared. I'm scared for him. if he is it's gonna be harder on him growing up if he has it. this hit out of no where. i never considered autisum... but it kinda makes sense with his behaviour. except that he CAN be social with other kids if he's in the right mood. she said it would probebly be mild if thats whats wrong. I'm still scared for my little guy. the seizures were bad enough... now this.. I'm only 20, im a single mom.. It's just all so much to deal with. My poor little guy.. i wish i could make everything better.. and maybe he isn't autistic.. but even just having to go through so much testing for everything. It's no wonder he's scared of doctors..
