Is there an autism thread on this forum? Mommy of 2 + 1 angel 2 kids; 1 angel baby; Pearl, Mississippi 19333 posts
May 20th '12

My daughter's pediatrician just told me that she has what they call pervasive developmental delays and that it is on the autism spectrum. She hasn't seen the behavioral pediatrician to confirm yet but we got a referral to the clinic. I think my daughter is getting worse with her unusual traits and I am about to lose my mind. I need to talk to other mom's dealing with this or that have dealt with it and know some good ways to teach the child that their behavior is unacceptable. :(
Please help me!

We're also seeing an OT for SPD. Can you give me the link to that thread also?

i to would love for there to be an autism forum. The Dr recently told me in February my son might have autism, He said they don't do test until 2 years of age therefore we have to wait until December of this years, He's in the birth to 3 program to try an help him with talking. He doesn't talk (just points at everything and said huh repeatedly ) does the hand flapping and will stare at nothing for a few minutes some times longer.. His father walked out on us not that long after we found out, he doesn't see him/call or anything, So I'm dealing with this on my own.

I'm so sorry to hear that! If you need to talk I can listen and chat with you! I wish you the best and know that you may be doing it on your own but you are not alone and there are plenty of people dealing with the same issues that you can talk with for advice or just to vent. I am a member of two groups on FB for two different syndromes because one I believe my daughter may have and the other my daughter was being tested for (which came back normal) and I will not leave either group because despite the fact that my daughter hasn't gotten a genetic disorder diagnosis, alot of our children share a lot of the same problems and we can talk about them and how to deal with them.
I hope you can find some support in your community also because I am sure they have groups that you can meet up for playdates maybe for other kids with autism.
