My child was recently diagnosed

My child started to regress at 15 months of age. With help from his early intervention, and now his therapies he has progressed so much. He's only 2 1/2 now. I love him with all of my heart but I get so overwhelmed. Not in front of him of course. I just feel sad he can't "mama" or "I love you". I worry about him and his nutrition. He is a head strong picky eater. He has a hard time communicating what's wrong and he gets frustrated/aggressive, it breaks my heart. I get frustrated when people think I'm being a bad parent that my child is "out of control ", but aggression is his way of showing me what's wrong. I wish more people understood autism. He's developed separation anxiety, he relies heavily on me. But I wouldn't change him for anything. Autism doesn't own him, he owns autism. I've never met someone so sweet, happy, and as lovable as him. He is my miracle.

your little guy sounds amazing. It does seem as if some people don't understand that behavior is a form of communication, especially in those who struggle to communicate verbally. Maybe this is an opportunity for you to educate those around you?
