some time ago, I noticed one of the people here had a note under the avatar mentioning a family member with autism, a child, and that she could be contacted. unfortunately, I misplaced the note. this last week my 2-1/2-year-old grandson was diagnosed with autism, scale 17. he starts therapy this week but I am having trouble with this. I am a medical transcriptionst for 20 years and have dealt with the autism spectrum before but only the very severe cases. I am heartsick and frightened for my loving and laughing Phoenix. if she can contact me, I would really appreciate it. thanks so much.
