Hello, I'm Natalie SAHM to Cameron (2.5yrs) and Tyler (10weeks). I was here about a month ago and asked some questions. Well 2 weeks ago we finally got the diagnosis of Cameron's autism. We live in Ontario and there are lots of programs available (with long waiting lists) and some subsidies I am looking into. It's all a little overwhelming, but I think I am getting it under control. DH works from home so we are a very close family and both DH and I have similar parenting styles that seem to be helping Cameron.

I just received the doctors report today on Cameron's diagnoses. She gave rave reviews to DH and I which makes me feel much less like a failure as a mother. I do have a question though. Do any of you know what the autism score is? It says the following: Using the ADOS 1 module, Revised Algorithm, Cameron's score for social affect is 13, his score for restricted and repetitive behaviors is 6 giving him a total score of 19. This score is consistent with a diagnosis of autism.

I know that there are different degrees of autism. I was just wondering how I find out how bad Cameron's is? I can't find anything online that describes the score. I'm so lost

Any help would be appreciated. And I hope ya like me because I plan on becoming a regular!

Thanks Nicole (MommaDucks) for my new & awesome siggy.

My son was evaluated in August of 2001. I looked over his paperwork, which I put in full here, and didn't see that abbreviation. Maybe you can read thru it and see if it answers any of your questions.

It differs by state, and you're not in the US so I have no clue right now what it means, but I will try to find out for you. They've also made a lot of changes over the years.

My son was diagnosed when he was 3 1/2, but he was labeled Speech and Language Impaired at 18 months. He was in services for that until preschool at age three, and then his teacher, who had an autism background, brought up autism and it took 6 months to evaluate him, and when they did, it was a lot of people; teacher, spec. ed. teacher, speeth pathalogist, occupational therapist, psychiatrist, all in my home, his classroom or a neutral setting. It was all very thurough. We also saw a neurologist, which was a waste of time and money.

I am a breastfeeding, cloth diapering, co-sleeping, no crying it out, baby wearing mama of 3 boys, one of which has autism. Meet my boys here (having technical difficulties with my website). My blogs are On Top of Mt. Laundry and The Cache Checkers.

Most frequently found at the Cloth Diapering board but also a member of the July '05 PR, Austim board and the Choosing Not To Vaccinate board.

Welcome to the board

I'm sorry to not be of any help on the test and what the scores mean. I'm not familiar with the testing that he had. My dd has had a few neuropsychological exams, which were EXTREMELY enlightening, but the tests were different from the ones your son had.

I hope you can get some answers soon.

I will have to look over my sons papers to see if they gave a score for his ADOS screening in the report. Seems like they did.

Thanks to Maitri for my wonderful siggy!
