So we took Beau to the OU children's specialist to get his eyes checked. He came back blind as a bat with neg 9.5 in both eyes. So we have his glasses ordered and we are picking them up on Tuesday.

Beau is diagnoses with PDD-NOS and I have a huge family history of Autism/aspergers excluding the children under 1, between my mother and her two sister 5 out of 15 of their grandchildren (counting Beau) are on the spectrum. I was very concerned that he never "asked" for anything and used no hand language. He just turned two and just started saying NO!

Through his early intervention program we had a vision therapist out at our house to help get us ready for him getting his glasses. She explained to us how his vision would cause the very delays he is having.

Even though I completely believe Beau could be autistic I am finding more and more of his personal profile just doesn't match. Beau never ever has been a fussy baby. He hasn't developed anything in the obessive compulsive area yet. He still hasn't expressed any sensory issues. He does however seem to "stem" but not obessively. The vision specialist says that even that come back to a lack of visual imput. Like he can't see the floor and that is why he rubs his head on it.

In the end he is still developmentally delayed, but possibly able to catch up.

Interesting development. If you're thinking less and less that Beau is on the spectrum you are probably right. Mother's intuition is rarely wrong. I hope that now his vision issues have been diagnosed and action is being taken that you see some improvement. You sound like a wonderful mom who's really tuned in to her children, by the way.

So Beau has had his glasses for about a week and a half. He is doing very well keeping them on after all he is two. He is good in the high chair, in the car, outside playing. He doesn't like to wear them watching TV. he'll take them off. He prefers to watch TV very close up.

In the last week he has noticed people use silverware. He has noticed us giving his sisters treats and let us know he wants some too. He is using his hands more, waving, and reach for things.

He is also talking more. When I count he can add in some numbers usually 2 and 3 and using his hands. He is liking peekaoo right now too. He is also making eye contact!

here he is at the pumpkin patch this is the finger for one!
