I am a mother of a 4 year old boy. He was diagnosed on the Autism Spectrum in 08, speech delay, global delays such as fine and gross motor.
He has constipation issues which is off and on, we went to a holistic dr. who told us that he is allergic to everything except apples, but a regular allergist diagnosed him with NO allergies.
He didnt breast feed easily. His dr. diagnosed him at 18 months with not speaking, walking, being picky regarding eating. I was recommended to our local Birth-3 developmental organization for help and they worked with him. Although they did help him with walking, his speech is still not what i would call improved to this day.
Now he says very few words, such as hat, hi, ba,. He does say "way".
He still wants to eat baby food, since he is not getting nutrition any other way. He will not eat anything that i cook. Potty training is a nightmare, i paid $1,000.00 for a woman to come in and "teach him to pee and she does not teach bowel movements". She did state she worked with developmentally disabled kids. But now what do i do when he poops in his pants all the time. He does now pee in the potty.
He sees speech, occupational, physical therapists at school. He has a private speech, occupational therapist which we are paying through the nose and who want me to schedule a conf call between them and the school. Another private speech therapist we are using is more concerned about catching "germies" from kids, she has an artillary of antibacterial bottles all around her office.
And to put more whip cream on top of my situation, i am completly miserable in this marriage.
