So I took my son to the doctor today for an unrelated reason to this topic. But a couple of times his doctor has talked about his speech not being up to the standard developmental stage. So she is having Heartland AEA evaluate him coming soon. I'm just really confused and worried because it could be autism or just a developmental problem. Has anyone had to go through this or have any suggesstions? I'm so concerned, I'm a single mom and don't know how to get through this by myself. I would love my son regardless, but autism? It just scared me that my son won't live the life I've always dreamed of him to live. Am I too worried?
