And denial can be counterproductive. Urgency is sort of the name of the game with autism these days. They are screening earlier and earlier in their attempts to make the best possible progress against the disorder. This means that many of the little ones who are diagnosed will go on to have their diagnosis reversed. I am so glad that someone told me this, it is a beacon of hope. But it doesn't change the fact that we have to respond with the utmost seriousness to what the EI team is telling us. We can't afford to keep waiting and hoping for some miraculous catch-up that doesn't happen.
Remy is about the same but he continues to get better at please and pointing. This week I am filling out a packet and faxing it over to Tuoro University where they are going to do neuropsych testing, probably some time in February or March. I am reading more about food intolerances and how they can affect development. Still waiting to hear from the therapist who is going to be doing our home visits. I have to buy a binder soon since all of the reports and forms are starting to overflow Remy's medical folder. It's all a little surreal. Anyway, that is where I am at today.
