I'm noticing improved speech patterns in my youngest son. He now uses more complete sentences when responding to or asking questions. I do wonder where he would be developmentally had he received #earlyinterventions? Like so many parents, I dismissed existing signs as an awkward phase that he would grow out of given time. I was especially reluctant to address my concerns because my oldest son had already been diagnosed with #autism and I felt that surely not another one!! I had read stories about parents who had several children with autism and I just couldn't accept that as my reality at the time. Had o been more diligent on finding answers earlier, maybe things would be different; maybe not.
