Testy Momma....


A bunch of things happened that put me in an 'Up Yours!!' kinda mood, and almost every single thing that happened comes down to the MYTH that kids with autism cannot get better and that if they do, well, then they never really had autism in the first place.

Well, trust me, Salamander's original "Asperger's with a lot of twists" diagnosis was 'spot on'. And the fact that his presentation fits this diagnosis less and less has nothing to do with the fact that the original diagnosis was wrong. It has everything to do with the fact that, slowly but surely, the HUGE biomed program we have in place is allowing him to HEAL physically and feel so much better, so he can actually make efficient use of all those other interventions (educational interventions, remedial therapies, assistive technology, etc., etc., etc.,) to learn all those 'NT' skills!!!
