Hi all. I have a son who is almost 3 and a half years old who probably has PDD-NOS. We thought at first it was just SID (sensory integration dysfunction), but in addition to sensory issues, he has some obsessions (light bulbs, batteries, smoke detectors, etc.) and some mild developmental delays. However, he has made good progress in our EI program and now in his preschool class, which has kids with special needs and those developing typically. He gets speech and occupational therapy while at school.
I am now pregnant with our second and last child. I just found out we are having another boy, and I was soooo hoping for a girl, thinking a girl would be less likely to have sensory issues. I don't know if I can deal with another child with the severe feeding issues my son has. I just hope God won't give me another child with those issues. Our son does not chew food now, so we have to cut up food a lot and we have to feed him. He doesn't like to eat very much either. It has been a major pain to deal with, and still is to this day.
Did any of you have to deal with the chance of having another autism spectrum child? Did any of you go on to have "NT" kids, especially boys, after having one on the spectrum?
