I have been doing ok with everything latley but now I just feel so overwhelmed. I am sure its normal. I just got the paperwork so we can get Jay evaluated and I was like.. :shock: I do not want to think about possibly being possible on the ASD. I thought maybe I was crazy but Jay's therapist said he is showing some signs. She has been a teacher for 15 years. My grandma talked to a lady from church. Her grandson has Autism. She was actually my teacher at one time and my grandma was talking about to her about Jay. She said it does sound like he may have a mild form or Autism. I guess I am just scared and worried. I know he will be fine.

I think it comes in waves....the overwhelmed feeling. Its perfectly normal to feel that way . Do you have any idea how long before the eval or do you have to get the paperwork in first and then wait to hear?

The paperwork has to get sent in first. It should be a 3 month wait. So I am guess either the end of febuary or begining of march.

Hang in there. It was mostly slow going, but a lot of my fears have been put to rest (he was diagnosed in2001). I still have concerns of course, but he is doing very well and I'm predicting it'll only get better for us, and I just know it will be for you! You gotta get over these first huge bumps first, but I know it'll get better.

Big hugs! Our sons are nearly the same age! Brayden has been in therapy for a year now and a totally different boy! REALLY work with the therapists, carry on what they do all the time and the more you fight the better he will be! They are saying that our dx might be taken away with his next eval....but we seriously WORK 8-10 hours a day! He doesn't get anything he wants until he at least makes an effort to ask for it, I force eye contact, I teach him what to say and when to say it, we work soley on pretend play for hours.....And now I can understand him and see that he is using sentences, asking questions....everything he *should* be doing----the only problem now with communication is that no one else can understand him! And sensory is still an issue.

Good luck!

Thanks to Maitri for my wonderful siggy!
