My son is 7 and we are just starting to look into autism. We were told at 3 1/2 he had smaller than average ear canals which led to frequent ear infections. At 4 we were told he had a language delay and started therapy. At 6 we were told he was dyslexic and had ADD. Now he is 7, struggling in school and more violent behaviors are starting to emerge out of frustration. I am at a loss. I would appreciate any advice I could get from moms that may have been in similar situations. Thanks!

Thank you for your response. Did he go to a private school or was it a public school?

My nephew has it. He's goes to a school that specializes in it. It had really helped him. He's even talking more. At first he was in a school that just had classes because he's a twin and my brother didn't want to split them up. But the school has made a big difference and he's glad he did it
