  • In the 'what are you known for' thread I really wanted to ask what people thought I was known for. I'm sure its different things for everyone. But I figured it was better to not stir the dust on that stuff. 

     

    I know Colby is one of the younger s12 babies but he seems behind everyone elses LO. I'm irrationally scared of austim/ some other learning disorder.

  • My LO absolutely loves the song "Go DJ" by Lil Wayne. He can be throwing an absolute fit and that song will make him completely silent. Guess I better find another song he likes before he is able to repeat the lyrics.

  • Every time I see a post titled 'am I a biitch' or 'am I overreacting?' I wanna reply with a 'yes' without reading. Most of the time they are legitimate concerns. I guess my confession is that I am a biitch and I know it and I am ok with it.

    My LO is one of the younger S12 babies and I have those thoughts too, I think it is a normal mom thing. Try not to worry so much.

    We let Connor gum on a french fry yesterday at the zoo. DH did wipe the salt off of it first but still. I don't think he really swallowed anything though, he ended up spitting it back out after awhile.

    I think it's a normal mom thing. C is one of the older babies and I have those thoughts too. Holly, I hope you relax about it.

    And I'm not sure because Autism is not one of the things I work with (I work with EBD/LD/FAS for the most part) but doesn't Autism manifest later?

     They don't really start testing for it until 1 year. I think?  I know my BFFs brother was developing normally until about 15 months and then just stopped. They had him tested for everything for a while and it wasn't until he was close to 3 that they landed on a ASD.

  • Autism does not present itself at 7 months, nor does it come in the form of developmental delays like sitting up, crawling, etc.

    Holly, I think it's normal to have concerns. I've googled autism more than I'd like to admit. I think there is just no way of knowing right now. I've heard these milestones and things happen overnight. Before you know it you'll be shocked at everythig LO is doing!

  • Autism is rarely diagnosed before 2-3. They may start testing and EI but you won't get a diagnosis until you are AT LEAST 2, but usually, they hold off on that until age 3 because like asthma, once that shitt's in your medical record, it's there forever.

    Autism isn't something that will be noticed by your child not rolling over, crawling or feeding himself.  It's not detected until later when the child is slow to interact socially, speak or make eye contact.  Nothing can be detected in a child this young.

    This. And while they so take in to consideration gross motor milestones, they are also considering other factors such as speech development, eye contact, usually a stunt in overall development, etc. Basically they are considering things that our babies are not even developmentally ready to master or attempt.
    I guess my FFFC is that as a Special Educator I obsess about milestones and have to talk myself down often because there are kids who meet milestones within normal limits that go on to have severe learning disabilities and kids who are delayed in meeting milestones and go on to be do just fine in school. Every kid is different and I constantly have to remind myself that.

    Right, but at 7 months, there aren't "signs" of autism.

    What's EI?

    Early Intervention. It's a state by state program that gets a referral from the pediatrician, does a screening, and then if appropriate, schedules in home work. Therapies to help develop the skills. Sometimes it's speech, sometimes it's PT, OT. Sometimes it's communication and just teaching life skills.

    This can help you determine if there is REALLY anything at all to worry about at this young of an age.  But realistically speaking, babies don't follow a schedule.  Many meet milestones at different times and they are perfect healthy and smart.  Don't be concerned unless there is something glaringly wrong.

    All of this.  Some of the patterns are NMS, but overall, I'm a fan of VB.  I also send DD to daycare with an old Vera Bradley tote I used as a book bag in college.

  • oops. meant to quote lois. mobile, sorry.

    she was delayed right from the beginning, not meeting milestones. she was officially DX with autism around 18 months. There's a lot more story that I won't get into, either way, it scared me enough to worry about it a lot more with Colby than I did Keagan. This little girl is pretty severe though and (from what I know) most likely won't be able to ever live on her own. My knowledge is very limited though due to a shiity relationship with the mom. I hope I am wrong.

    Don't! It's actually fairly common.  My mom runs a daycare and they have a bunch of kids that are getting speech therapy. I think it's fantastic that there are resources out there to help kids at such a young age.

    And I think you deserve a lot of credit for recognizing it and getting her the assistance!

  • At our 6 month appt the pedi's office gave us paperwork to fill out to begin testing for autism at her 9 month appt.  I wonder why if it doesn't begin to really show till later.
