TO: pddnosmom123

I'm gonna blog again later to catch up some...okay a lot. But I want to comment to PDDNOSMOM123 who posted a question on my last entry. I haven't even checked my blog lately, so I just got it. I tried to click on you, but it didn't lead me to a blog. Hopefully, you find this.

Ian was diagnosed at 18 months old. He was not 'diagnosed' with autism first, and he still does not qualify under the checklist of autism from the school system. Someone (sorry, can't remember who) replied back to you about the difference between an autism description and FX diagnosis. I agree that I would ask for the FX test. Although there are similarities between the two, there are also differences. When dealing with each, it's a good idea to know exactly what you're dealing with....especially if it's both. Not to mention the services you could receive. Please keep me updated.
