The diagnosis is nothing unexpected, and it should not change anything in his life. It may help him to get a few accomadations in school (more time for tests, etc.) but he really doesn’t need any more help, he has made great strides the last few years!
The decision now, is do we want to pursue any other services for him? Right now, we say no, but I think I will talk to Katie (at MOMS group) about the many agencies she has to work with. MOMS group, has truly been a blessing in my life. God certainly had his hand in putting all us ASD mama’s together!
Side Note: Dayton was awesome at the evaluation yesterday! He actually shook the doctors hand at the end, and had a spontaneous conversation (it was about trains, but a conversation none the less!).
