I'm glad you did this. I have a son who is 91/2. He is Autistic. He's been living in Colorado with his dad for the past 2 years. We get him for summer and Christmas break. One more year of this and he will be able to live with us again. It's been so hard on me being separated from him!!!

We are blessed with some pretty amazing kids.

I will start I have 2 girls my youngest Megan is 9 years old, soon to be 10, she was diagnosed at just over 18 months of age. She received no service until she was 5, so we moved to a new area where they had more services. So at 5 she started speech at the health unit, then a few month later she started in the EIBI program ( Early intensive behavioral intervention) she continued this program until the age of 7 when she was cut off for funding due to age. After that we did very little for the next year adapted swimming, speech etc. Then her speech and language pathologist started her on the RDI program( Relationship Development Intervention) wow this has been awsome for her! She will continue this until she is more then likely an adult.

My other daughter Stephanie is 11 years old and is believed to be on the spectrum we are still awaiting proper diagnois for her, so she has not received as many services, although she has great language skills, witch sometimes helps and sometimes hurts.

As a parent I have had some of the proudest moments of my life watching these girls grow, not that I haven't been to some pretty dark places either.

So lets get to know one another! Who's next!
