Re: My 4 year old son and his delays... :(
Same story here. We have 2 boys. One will be 3 in March and one just turned 4 in Jan. We were told they have global delays. Which just means that no one knows why. We were under the impression because of things the neurologist said that it might be CP, but so mild and why label him, so we didn't. Now some of his therapist think he might be on the Autism spectrum. Maybe PDD, or something. It's so frustrating. I have to watch him struggle and I don't know why, and so I can't help much. I just take him to therapy, had him enrolled in a public Pre-KD program. And hopefully the younger one can go too when he turns three. Our oldest is 12 months behind in most of his skills, and won't pay any attention to other kids, unless they take his toy. The school doesn't want to do anything because developmentally he is so young. But I feel like we are wasting time. If he's Austic, I want to know now, So he can get help now. And that means paying for it all ourselves. So frustrating. We are going to find him a mental health professional, because i'm afraid his frustartion might lead to low self esteem and self image. Already he's showing behavioral problems. Screaming, Arm flapping, biting and pinching. He has words, but often can't find them appropiately. It's like he has to think about for so long, that is attention span runs out. So it never gets said. He either tantrums or moves on. And I don't know what he's feeling. It makes me sad, and other moms don't understand. We don't even understands what's wrong because he can't tell us.
