Because Cooper "looks" normal, I get the comments from family/friends & strangers that he's fine... they assume that b/c he is walking & what not, he's okay. They don't see the "real" issues. I am tired of explaining the SN of my DS to everyone, especially those who know me well, like my MIL, she'll say "what's REALLY wrong w/ him"... I hate that. I mean, seriously, if you aren't going to take the time to listen to me the 1st time, why should I continue to explain myself? I also get the attitude that "oh he's fine" and assume that he can go to a place or do something, when in fact, he cannot, like a park, he can't do it w/ out one-on-one supervision, so for me to go to a park & let him play & chat w/ other mothers, I can't...he would get hurt b/c of his low-tone & falling all the time.

Are people just ignorant or are they in denial? Just curious on your take for this.
