Autism

Well...it's official. Miss Ladybug has a diagnosis of "Autistic Disorder." We already knew, but now it's for sure. So, where do we go from here? The doctor presented me with a 3 1/2 inch stack of resources and articles all about it. The thing is, we don't really feel compelled at this point to do anything different than what we are currently doing. We just wanted to know for sure, what were dealing with. Now we know. I'll tell ya' what...it'll be much easier to tell people about her issues. Instead of talking about 5 million, individual difficulties that she deals with, we'll just say "She has Autism and some other issues." Most people "get it" when they hear the word "Autism." She's still the same, sweet kiddo'...we just have a new word to help describe her now. :0)

  1. At least now you know. Not something anyone wants to hear but easier to handle when you know. Loves to Lynzie and all of you.
