Just when i didn't think anymore tears would come....Bam! My son hasn't been formally diagnosed yet,they are screening Caden tomorrow(at my insistance) I decided to stay home with him last February and he seems to be at the same stage mentally.My husband and I suspected something months ago.(Caden just turned two.)He can't talk at all.Six months ago he used about five words, then stopped.Now he can't tell me when he's hungry or thirsty,even if we scream his name he won't respond.He still walks on tiptoes, bangs his head when he's frustrated,runs aimlessly all day long with no nap.I used to think that I just over anticipated his every need, therefore not giving him opportunities to express himself.On the bright side, he WILL point when he wants something ,grasp my hand when he wants me to go somewhere or do something, hug and kiss me,I hold my breathe in hopes that.. just ..maybe, one day...when I say ,"I love you,Caden'"he'll say it back...Is it too early or should I wait for a formal diagnosis? I've gotten books, been on various sites researched and researched and every sign points to maybe.
