Allow me to introduce myself, I am a mom to a handsome, wonderful, brilliant 5-year old little boy who has been alternatively diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome, Highfunctioning Autism and PDD-NOS. The latest diagnosis happens to be Asperger's. I have been a lurker for the over 2 years, just when I suspected that my son might be on the spectrum. Great to be able to "talk" to from parents who understand both the strengths and challenges. I'll be reading and posting often.

Welcome, welcome, welcome.

My daughter has had the same list of dx'es. Her most recent is Asperger's too. Funny thing is she likely could be considered HFA due to her early delays, but my AS son is way more autistic and his only autism spectrum diagnosis has been AS. Prior to 7, dad and I were in denial. We couldn't have 2 of them, so he was diagnosed with SID, ADHD, OCD, anxiety disorder, and a partridge in a pear tree.

Glad to have you here.
