Thanks for the answers. I always question if I am doing something right. TJ is brushing for defensiveness. His ot, pyschologist,and dt agree its pretty severe. He was doing really well until Saturday. he was off all weekend and for the omst part today too. He loves the exercise ball. The only way I can get him to sleep (the little that he did this weekend) was to put a heavy floor pillow in his bed or hold him with the pillow. He also crave the pillow while on the ball. We have made him some bean bags to fidgit with and one long enough(in dad's tube sock) to lay on him while he is on the ball. He use to sleep 2 hours for a nap but now I am lucky if he gets an hour. He is waking up every morning between 1:30 and 3 screaming. He never woke up screaming until this started. Once he is up he takes anywhere from 1-4 hours to get him back to sleep. I am exhausted and he is very very clingy, his ot says he thinks he may be in a transitional phase but I dont know. He wines constantly. He seems to talking less than Monday of last week. He points and basically says that or grunts when he wasnt something. Is any of this behavior sound familiar? He loves his ot and dt and we are changing his spech therapist( he has screamed the entire session for 5 weeks now and I feel like we are losong ground. Am I jsut paranoid or is something wrong here?
Thanks for all the information. It is nice to have someone to "talk" to. He did see the neurologist the last week in Dec. and her statement was she is leaning toward autsim but he is uncooperative( duh)and to make an appointment in six months but have ahearing test eeg and fragile x blood test about a month before we come back. Well the therapsit went nuts and we are seeing a different neurologist March 2, this guy is supposed to be very aggessive and we will start ruling somethings out.
Thanks again. It is just nice getting all this out.
