My grandson went today to his evaluation. When he was first dianosed in 2007 they said he was mild retardation with autism plus behavior problems and he couldn't speak well he could but you didn't know what he was saying. Today they ruled out retardation and said he was at age level knowing his shapes and other things they tested him at. They said they were almost sure he would grow out of autism because of the improvement he has made. He still has behavior issues and some speech issues. He's about 30% lower than normal for speech. He's very good at sounding out letters but he has a hard time pronouncing some letters in words. For instance Thrasher the monster truck he pronounces it Rasher. I do believe in the glutin and casein free diet. Because he starting talking after being on it for a while now he is non stop which is great. I know it doesn't work for all but I was willing to try anything and glad we did.
