: On Jacob's discharge papers his diagnosis' say 1.stereotypic movement disorder 2.moderate mental retardation 3.cerebral palsy 4.seizure disorder new onset 5. chronic diarrhea ,,,,, they did'nt use the word Autism ????? I am just wondering is it all the same? ,, He was diagnosed with having Autism at 3 ,, he is almost 6 now ... Please write me if any one else has heard of Stereotypic movement disorder?????????? or has a child diagnosed with it maybe .,...... Thank you ,,,, DeAnna in Georgia
:I'm sorry to hear about these diagnoses and wish the best for your family. I just think that this is another example of why it is time for autism to be defined more clearly. God bless.
