  •  Diagnosis Was A Blessing (3+ / 0-)

    When we took our 18 month son to the Early Intervention center here in Florida and they said "it might be autism, you should have him evaluated" it felt like getting hit by a truck.  My wife had some Aspie students, and suspected something was wrong, but I didn't see it coming.  It didn't seem like the autism I'd heard about before.

    In hindsight, it was a total blessing because we ended up getting an actual diagnosis of Autism before he was 2.  My insurance covers ABA and Speech Therapy, in addition to opening up Hanen and other programs.  Early detection and intervention is critical to maximizing quality of life, and hopefully full recovery.
