A diagnosis
My beautiful baby boy is Autistic. We are shocked, numb, sad, angry. It is such a whirlwind of emotions. We had the second assessment by the pediatrician yesterday and we have been referred on to a clinical psychologist and a diagnostic speech pathologist.

Next week Michael and I go back and we will get a therapy plan from the Dr.

I'm not looking forward to the numbness wearing off.

Hugs to you Alli. It is just so hard to hear about this news. But I agree with Renea now that you know at least you can get a plan in place.

Sorry Ali- but also glad you can now 'work' on it, iykwim? My daugher has a physical disability and it is sooo hard to know your baby is a little different! Hugs to you :)
