My 3 year old boy was diagnosed with autism....?
3 months ago my son was diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder,what made me decide to go to a developmental specialist was when i enrolled him in a daycare center, i observed that he is not sitting on his chair & doing different things from his classmates. i was shocked to find out that, i am totally clueless what asd is...i searched & read about the cause & treatments. we started the occupational therapy and we've been going to his therapist for 3 months now.i've seen a lot of improvements, and he can now ask & say what he wants, though he cant still compose a complete sentence.up to now, i am still seeking for answers. what is life when he grows old? is he going to outgrow his asd? he is my only son and im totally disappointed to find out that he has that kind of disorder.i just want him to have a life on his own someday.i cant be with him forever. some parents that i interviewed in the therapy center, they told me that a lot of children in the center finished the therapy after 3 years and already mainstreamed and they already attend to a regular school.i want to stay positive that my son can go to a regular next year after a year of his therapy.but i'll continue his therapy until he gets better.another problem is that i dont have a job to support my son's fee for his treatment, its very expensive.i just do hope that God will help me along the way.can you give or share some advice about asd and is it really true that 3 years of therapy is effective in order to get out or somewhat be a normal kid again? my son is normal and saying words when he was 1 and 2, thats why i didnt expect he has asd.thank you. im here in the philippines.God bless !
