Adam is 6 years old, funny and fabulous. Struggled through 2 different schools, until we got the diagnosis at Vanderbilt University, and got what I think is a good placement for him. He's still having issues, but not as bad, and is having measurable progress. He made it through first grade, yay! My biggest issue is not with him, but with others (especially in my family)

I don't know, I've showed them stuff online about autism, they say "that sounds just like Adam!", then the next time we have a difficult situation, they tell him he's too smart to be acting that way. Sigh, I know it'll get better, just trying to be patient.
