Im a young mother of two beautiful children. My oldest is five and has been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. We are trying to get him in to see a autism specialist to be tested to see how severe it is. He has had problems since before he was born. It is very stressfull and I always feel like noone knows how it feels . It would be nice to hear from somebody who can relate to what Im going through.

I have two autistic boys. One is five and was diagnosed at 3 and one 12 who has just been diagnosed with high functioning autism. So as you can see I have been through it all.

Starrspunn, I can relate to you. I have two sons one 5 and on is 3. The oldest was diagnosed as PPDDNOS on the austim spectrum, with ADhd also. My yougest has been diagnosed as PDDNOS also. It can be very stressful. I get frustrated when people all around me tell me to do this with them and try that with them, but these people had never had to deal with a child with special needs. I can tell you that I have good days and bad days. Some weeks are worse than others. I just take things in stride . I feel the most important thing is getting the right diagnosis. My son after a few months of trying a set routine and trying to not yell and to strict time outs. He finally had to be medicated. As my three old. There are days when I have just shut my self in the bathroom for a few minutes and cried. Other times I wanted to walk ou and never come back, But I know in my heart I never would. Just take things by the hour I say. Be to the T with timeouts they do work. I have a reward system in place for my sons. And if thing get really out of control they go into there room to have what I call quiet time for a few minutes. It can be so frustrating, I think why us why them but then I think of all the people worse off than me. I am luck to have these beautiful little joys. I hope this help some. bubegirl77
