Welcome to the site Greenwhip. What State are you in? While you are waiting for all the assessments is it possible for you to get an aide for her at school? What grade is she in?

Good luck and feel free to read the site and ask any questions so others can share feedback based on past experiences to help you along.

Hi I am a mother of many, but my second daughter has Rett Syndrome-which is on the extreme end of the Autistic spectrum. I haven't read all the way through here yet, but are there any other parents of Rett girls??

Hi everyone,
I am new here. I have 3 girls. The oldest (10 yrs old) has Aspergers as well as Bipolar and ADHD. Turns out my husband has all three DX as well although when I married him, we only knew about the Bipolar. It has been quite a journey. Preschool and early elementary school, with no DX, was a nightmare. I pulled her out to homeschool her after a horrible 1st grade experience. During the time she was at home with me we were able to get all the evals done and get her the therapies and meds she needed. I put her back in public school this past January. Now with official DX, the school put together a 504 plan and really worked with her. Her teacher was great. Still, her interaction with other kids was a problem. But after reading some posts on here by those with older kids who have gone on to succeed and excell in what they do, I have hope that no matter what, it will be okay. It is nice to know I have a place where I can talk to others who understand the challenges faced each day. So, hello. And I am glad to be here.


P.S. I get cash back on all my eBay purchases. Do you? I also get cash back from 100s of online retailers. Free to join. Learn About BigCrumbs .

I am new here. We have adopted 2 children and the oldest has autism and global delays. I would like to know if I can homeschool him and what do I do ? We live in Delaware.
How do i get curriculum specific to his needs ?
He goes to a special school, but it seems he learns more at home than anywhere.I kept him home from summerschool this year and noticed improvement in several areas.
Can anyone please help me ?

Hi. My name is Mary. I'm a mother of two, My 4 year old daughter, Kaia, is NT. My 3 year old son, Aaron, was diagnosed with PDD-NOS earlier this year when he was 2 1/2. We had intensive in-home ABA therapy (covered by the State)for a few months until he turned 3. This helped him tremendously. He will be starting special education preschool at the end of this month. I look forward to reading posts in this forum.

Hi Yadira,

(I think your English is very good).

I wonder how much of your son's not understanding could have to do with the language barrier?

It is hard enough for children with autism to learn to communicate, and it sounds like your child may be doing it in two languages.

I know my own son went from hardly speaking at all to full sentences like BAM! It could be that when your child is comfortable enough with his speech, he will do the same.

If your child is socially having a good time in "regular" pre-school, then I think it is fine to leave him there, and may be seek spech therapy for him in addition.

If he is staying upset about school all the time though, then you might want to look at putting him in special ed.
