I'm a single mother of a five year old autistic boy who is becoming interested in mother goddess and learning my path. I'm fresh from a neglectful relationship though it feels like I've been a single parent the whole six year relationship. But I'm happy to have been lead to this group and this site. I am working with his pediatrician to get a referral to the Marcus center here in Atlanta, but I would like to hear from some like minded people and get some advice. I don't know where to start to explain my path to him. I don't know how to handle his meltdowns and to handle his anger and attention span more naturally. If you have any ideas please let me know.

It's nice to see an Autie group on here. I'm what they refer to as "high functioning" tho I hate that term because it sounds elitist, like the spectrum is some kind of caste system. :p  Anyway, I'm totally into science and magick both, I can explain quantum gravity theories til my face turns blue, but I can't read analog clocks and have difficulty tying my shoelaces. And I'm 36! Oi!

In the same 7th Session Special Legislature meeting held in AZ that cut funding again for DDD- a bill that was to tax golf carts was not approved. So, basically I hope that all nice rich fat cats zooming a around in their tax free golf carts tip over. Money talks- middle - low income families with special needs can't grease the palms of politicians.

Arizona just cut funding for thousands of children! It is an outrage!

New research released Friday. Studies are showing the ASD children are processing language on an average of 10 words behind in a conversation. Thesis is that this is what is causing auditory and receptive language processing to not work quite right. It is a HUGE discovering because it means if they can find out why and how to remedy it-- they may have a possible cure!!!! THIS IS HUGE and was highlighted on ABC Saturday News report.

I am glad I could be of help. I will PM you my agency website we have some vidoes up about play therapy, ABA Therapy and a Nanny 911 episode with a family with an autistic child and how the family dynamic can either hurt or help.

You have to advocate hard. DDD is so over burdened that they can't. If your son has a IEP that is enough to get a referral for DDD. Just keep trying until you get a Case Manager who will, send you to a doctor for assessment based on his IEP. You have be the noise maker, bug them until they do it.

The school can't an won't diagnose, but they assess and you can use their documentation to get what you need. It just takes one good postive connection and your smooth sailing. Sounds like you are on the right track.

Your pediatrician should have given you a referral to a Developmental Specialist or Magellan. I am glad you finally have someone may get you what you need. I know it is so frustrating when they are under 7, so much harder to get a diagnosis.

If he is diagnosed Asperger's, which it sounds like he might possible be the gray area between High Functioning Autism and Asperger's is so thin, and if you get a Aspie diagnosis, you will not qualify for services with DDD, the do not consider Aspie one of their 4 diagnosis. Which is a shame, because it is the High-Moderate functioning individuals who have the greatest chance at a productive life with the proper therapies.

Keep moving forward, keep being your child's voice and don't believe everything someone tells you, with DDD get more than one person to give you information then compare, the truth lies in between all the varying answers.
