Grandmother has questions
by L. Thomas
I think my granddaughter may be one of those children whose diagnosis may not follow "normal" pattern of any of the numerous speech/language/perception/socialization issues. She is 3 and says only a few words but can make you understand what she wants by what she does. She has a few gestures that mimic autism but is very social. She does have extra space in the front of her scull, diagnosed by several test and MD's. There is no indication of brain loss though.
She has been poked. prodded, and observed for several digestive tract disorders, sleep apenea, neurological problems, auditory assessment and everything shows normal.
I would like to find a resource that identifies the difference it apraxia and autism.
