Exhausted - Lucky, don't want to give up
I was lucky if you want to call it that. I had a friend that had a son that had been diagnosed with SID. We spent a lot of time together with our preschoolers. She noticed things in my youngest son that reminded her of her son at an earlier age. By the time my youngest was 2 I had him in speech therapy and OT. We are still working on fine and gross motor but from a kid that I did not know if we were going to have in "regular" school to a kid that was the top reader in his kindergarten class. Early therapy was my savior. We still have tantrums and work to do but I have therapists and resources to use.
I noticed many similar signs in my older son but something is still a bit different. He at 8 was diagnosed with Aspergers. There are a lot of similarities. Somethings work for both some don't.
It is exhausting being a single mom with an ex that doesn't believe in any of this. But the kids will make it !
