(((MER))) I'm so far behind in the lives of all my iVillage friends! I only pop back on here once a year or so for something or another (the naughtiness!). I just happened to have some extra time tonight.

I actually give lectures on autism now and one of the slides is differential diagnoses/co-morbidities. About a year ago, I met a 12-y.o. who had just been dx'ed w/ AS, though he was previously mis-dx'ed as having ADHD. Sadly, not so uncommon -- though treatments are generally different.

Best wishes as you care for your kiddos.

Hi Meredith,

We had a big long discussion in Chat the other night, so I don't have much to add here except to "officially" welcome you to the board and remind you that you can ask as many questions as you need while you are going through this learning curve. There are no "silly questions" and no limit per customer ;)

Welcome to the board!

It's a great group of ladies here, I"m sure you'll find the support and friendship you need. I'm glad that you finally got a dx that fit your situation. So many people get cycled thru the system trying to find out what is going on. So I hope you hang out and get to know some of the great people on this board. It's a great place to vent, bounce ideas around, commiserate, share, and get tips. Hope to get to know you in the coming weeks.
