I guess the title pretty much sums it up. The evaluator was concerned about his lack of engagement and lack of pretend play. He does engage but not at the level he should. As for the pretend play he doesn't do that at all.

The doctor I really want to take him to has a 5 month waiting list and works with the OC center for autism and neurodevelopment. In fact they are not even taking new patients right now. I did call a couple other places and have paperwork emailed to me. I also took paperwork to the school district to have that process started.

The lady who evaluated for speech said he would definitely qualify for services through the district. I am hoping he qualifies for a developmental preschool.

imy son sometimes will find one specific toy like a transformer and sit with only that and become attached and not acknowledge others or if other activities are being shown to him.. he doesnt do this all the time but likes to choose a favourite and wont play with an alternative if asked to and will sometimes keep hold of it when its even time to put it away, he is three, is this a sign of autism or something else please?

Thank you. We had all his school evals done and his IEP is Monday 5/13. I found out yesterday that the insurance info I sent to ABA did not go through so none of the paperwork has even begun for that. They were very apologetic and resent me the forms which I am faxing in today.

Thanks. It took a while to get the aba started but he finally did starting last week. He qualified for 12 hours w eek, but we are starting him with 6 and increasing. He also gets ABA at school. We didn't want to overwhelm him with school starting back up and aba right after he gets home from school.
