Hi all i havent been on here for a long time. My son H has been under assesment simce the age of 18 months for lack of speech, first assesments they did nt think my son was autistic, then a yr later b4 his 3 birthday with only getting up to 6 words they decided to diagnose him with autism! Which wasnt abig shock to me! Im going to describe my son, he is very good at comuniticating nonverbally, and he uses alot of everyday signs with the few words he has, he is good at learning although preschool say he is delayed in areas apart from maths!! He is not agressive he is a very loving child, he does have funny ways, i.e he gets extra fustrated if he cannot do something, he doesnt like to spill his cereal pop ect!! And he has bow started to moan and cry alot which im guessing is from lack of speech! The assesment team have told me that there is a good school for him which is mainstream with a unit on the side! He does not start till sept 2014 so theres more time! I also have another aon who is 2 and has good speech and he fine no signs of autism! They tell me my son H should speak eventually as he has words now! Can anybody offer any advice or are they going thru the same thing! Has there child eventually spoke in the end? Thanks for reading Suzanne
