My 5yo DS was just diagnosed with ASD Monday. It was not a "shock" per se. I always knew there was something "off" since my DS was 18 months (no speech/language). But still, having it in black and white still hurts.
But having this diagnosis will not change the fact that my DS is still the same funny, smart, flirty, sassy boy who loves to cuddle with his mommy every morning and every night. He is still my boy, just intensified, lol.
What books or websites can you recommend to me to get me started on this adventure? His psychologist recommend a couple, but I want to hear what other Mom's recommend, kwim?
