My son was dx with Autism at 24 months of age. He is currently 28 months now. He has been receiving OT/Speech therapy for five months. Now he is very affection, shows joint attention, plays with other children, has several hundred words, almost typical eye contact, seeks praise, and has GREAT imitation skills. He appears to others a typical child now. My theory is he learned through OT very quickly how to regulate himself, and now he comes across very typical. He learned through speech how to use his words expressively. My question is he really autistic or appeared that way initial related to the sensory competent? Is it possible for child to be truly autistic, and with very early intervention come across typical or it is a mis-diagnosis? And in the case of SPD. I know several tricks now to get my son regulated very quick. The other day at nap he said, " Wait! Where are you going? Stop, Come back?" Now does this seem like a child who truly is autistic? If so, He is freaking amazing! He is already amazing!
