Hi guys, after a few months of testing and analysis my son has been diagnosed with autism. he is 4 (birthday last month) its at the low end of the spectrum we have been told, and even though we suspected it, its still a hammer blow. any tips or advise? we have held him back a year which means he isnt starting school now, he will do another year of pre-school. he was born in august and was 7 weeks premature so really was in the wrong year developmentally anyway. but he struggles to really play with other children and his communication isnt as good as it should be. its a shame as he is such a lovely little lad. he also seems to be good with empathy, i.e. if he sees someone hurt themselves he goes to help them and is very affectionate, which i thought was uncommon with autism. i have always suspected i am on the low end of the spectrum. thanks guys.
