I'm not asking anyone to diagnosis my child so please don't think I'm trying to do that. However, I was completely blind-sided when my daughter's doctor mentioned autism at her 2 year visit.
She is not using 2 word phrases. We all know her language and she only has to say the word and we know what she wants. Her older brother who is 6 was having difficulties in school due to his ADHD and I think we were very focused on him and didn't realize her delays. She isn't talking in 2 word phrases but she says about 20 words, she makes eye contact, she is very loving and affectionate without being prompted, interacts and plays & fights with her older brother. We are going along with the doctor and getting her evaluated but its going to be a long wait time. Any advice for some just starting this journey. :(
