Special Needs


So Beau had his evaluation today from the Child Psychologist and he has been diagnosed with Autism. I will have the official written eval in two weeks, but received a written diagnosis via email tonight. Surprisibgly I have done ok. I know it will hit me tonight once he is sleeping, I can't dare to cry in front of him. I have known this for some time, but it is so scary and I feel alone.

Thank you again to all of those who have commented of opened the door for communication. I am just kind of shocked and in awe at the moment and trying to let it all sink in. I will be contacting you all soon and will take all the input I or we as a family can get. I was just praying that we may catch a break. Having two special needs children is just unbelievable to me at this point...

Re: Diagnosis

  • Take some time to feel how you feel.  It is ok to let yourself go through a range of emotions - don't feel bad for any of your thoughts and emotions.  I will be praying for you and your family & hope to catch up soon when you're ready for questions and a chat.

  • I am obviously not in your shoes and can't offer any real words of wisdom. I hope that you make it through this time and that you and your DH learn to find the blessings in the challenges that you have been given. You and your three amazing boys will be in my thoughts.

  • I'm glad you finally have some answers.  I can't imagine what you're going through right now.  You know you can come here for support any time - we won't judge.
  • I also want to tell you that I am so excited that you will finally have the tools and insight to help Beau!  I'd be the last person to tell you how to feel but you don't have to feel helpless anymore!   I hope that I'm not off in left field with that feeling....
