Hi I'm Noah, new the to the group, looking to meet other parents with kids who have autism. I'm 28, a speech language pathologist in an elementary school and a single parent to 8 year old twin boys. Taden is the older by 2 minutes, he has ADHD and an auditory processing disorder. Tyler was diagnosed at 4 with autism, bipolar disorder not specified, disruptive mood dysregulation disorder, and adhd. I knew at 12 months that Tyler had autism but tried to deny it for so long. Even after he was diagnosed I denied it.
It's been really hard to get him any services. The best I've been able to do is find a counselor or mental health therapist. He's seen a few but all they seem to do is teach him to deep breathe when he's mad. I can't get him services through the school because academically he excels. I'm having a hard time lately, not having anyone to relate to. I was leaving work with the boys on Friday, and one of the teachers mentioned that "it must be nice to leave right away" at the end of the day. And all I could think was... I'd rather be able to work late than it be necessary for my son to have to go to therapy at all. Some of the people I work with know that Tyler has autism but not everyone. "he seems fine" his special needs are "invisible" (to some). It's just getting harder.
On both my Ipad and Iphone the title and most of the OP are overlaid with the banner, advertisements, the date in blue, and various other stuff that should not be there. Short posts fare a bit better.Does anyone else have this issue? Is DS going to fix it? Very frustrating to not be able to read the OP's anymore!
Hi!I am collaborating with a non-profit blog specialised on assisted reproduction, its name is Embryologist media. We have a section aimed for people with fertility problems, but we feel we are not really reaching many of you. One of the things we plan to do to solve this is expanding the websites where we announce new posts publications, how would you feel about us publicising new posts here...
