Hello...I'm new...

So I decided to look for an autism message board...my 7yo son has been diagnosed with a cognitive developmental delay and ADHD. At a doctor appointment last week, after seeing more "autism" symptoms in my son, asked the doctor what the difference is...he gave a verbal list of the symptoms normally seen in autism(my son fitting all but the lining things up) and then said that the symptoms are the same, its just a matter of what came first...I'm so confused, my dh is just ****** and wants to see a new doctor. Our next visit to the doctor isn't until sept but we are moving out of state in august so my husband is going to get his wish. At this point I don't even care about the diagnosis anymore, I just want to figure out what I can do to help my poor little boy. Looking at the posts in here, many people seem to be going through the same things we are, so autistic or not, I guess I am here for your help...and maybe I offer up something to help someone else along the way

Re: Hello...I'm new...

One important thing is the right school and teachers who understand the issues of whatever issues your son has. Before you move, call the local autism society of the area you are moving to and ask some questions about which school districts they rec'd that you move into. This can make a big difference for you son.

Sometimes medication is also very helpful depending on the problem areas.

What problems are you concerned about now?
