My son just turned ten, and so much of your early struggles with your son and getting a diagnosis sounds just like ours! It used to hurt so much seeing Colorful butterfly autism awareness shirt how different our son was from other kids, how parents looked at him, at us. We knew something was wrong when he was two, but it wasn’t until four that we finally had a doctor listen to us

and he was almost seven before he got his ASD diagnosis. Fortunately, our son’s school (public and he is in gen. ed.) is amazing, and they have been wonderful with him. There are times I feel like my son’s worst enemy (especially since I did not fight against the doctor who told us when our son was not speaking at two that he was just lazy in his speech) and sometimes like his biggest advocate. Mostly, I’m just mom, the person he can cry to when kids exclude him, the one who hugs him when he needs it, the one who listens to his endless ramblings about something he’s interested in Colorful butterfly autism awareness shirt because it’s one of the rare things that makes him happy, the one who fears for him and his future, yet who also rejoices in how far he’s come, the one who hopes to one day get more than “fifty-fifty” or “I don’t know” out of him when I ask him if he likes something , the one who feels like losing her mind sometimes but knows she has to hold it together for him … and I’m okay with that.

This spoke to me on a personal level. My oldest is almost 5 and it took him until he was 2 1/2 to start to actually say words. He’s doing so much better now and is able to keep a conversation for the most part. This gives me hope that my son can and will do amazing things even though all of the professionals say differently Absolutely beautiful. There is nothing like a mother’s love and support. What a wonderful young man…I’m so glad he had a mother to fight for him to get the things that he needed. I wish him a happy future and continued success. So glad this young man had a warrior Mom to battle for him through the school system. All school systems need this reality check. Public education does not properly protect and support students with learning disabilities. Shove that up your beginning of the year class preparatory glow. While you’re getting your warm-and-fuzzy on in uplifting retreats, we’re tying on our gloves and getting ready for another year of fighting for our kids’ basic rights.
