Thanks to both of you for the welcome!


My oldest, Connor, was evaluated through the CPSE when we thought there was a fine motor skill delay at age 3.

Of course you are welcome here! We have a lot of people who are in a similar boat to you right now; thinking their kid(s) might be on the Spectrum and not sure where to turn. I think in many ways you need this board more than the people with diagnosed kids do.

You mentioned a neurologist. Has any of your kids received a neuro-psychological evaluation or seen a developmental pediatrician? IME, those disciplines are better suited to evaluating young kids who may be on or near the Spectrum than a neurologist.

It sounds like you are ahead of the game in many respects. Your kids are getting therapies as needed and you are clearly keeping a close eye on all of them. That is about all you can do at this point.

Please feel free to post as many questions as you need, to jump in on any topic and to hang with us as long as you want! I came here about 7/8 years ago when my son wasn't definitively diagnosed and I have been here ever since.
