    of friends of mine who have children on the Autistic spectrum, your instincts are very sound; the earlier the intervention the more success your son will have as he grows and matures.  And you are right that NOW is the age to intervene not 2 years from now.  

    fight on and don't take no for an answer.  As others have said already, it sure sounds like someone in that school district see's themselves as a gate keeper and not as a helper of children.  granted money is tight these days in many school districts across the country, however, those of us in public service need to remember that we are here to serve the public; that we are not servants of the agencies or department administrations but of the public.  

     

    Life is not a problem to be solved but an adventure to be experienced.

      as they do into preventing help, there would be enough time & money to help kids with needed services.

      I like your 'gatekeeper' term - I used to envision the trolls under the bridge (or the GAP Troll from MAD TV.)

      Something that doesn't make good sense, makes bad sense. That means someone is being deliberately hurtful & selfish. Look for motives behind actions & words.
