We have come to accept and embrace Autism in our lives. Life is always difficult and there are days (many to be honest) where I wonder why God picked me for this job. Then there are the days where maybe Emmett learns a word or Gavin goes a whole day without a meltdown. Those are the good ones.
We are now facing another challenge that I don’t remember if I’ve spoken about before. It appears as though Elliott might be dealing with ADHD as well. He is ALL over the place. This started a some months ago. I had thought it was or maybe just hoped that it was anxiety. Man, I just don’t know. The only thing that holds his attention (at least at home) is his DS. He doesn’t listen and can’t stay still or talk quietly.
We’ll find out soon enough as he will be running through the Autism clinic at Akron Children’s Hospital. He has already been diagnosed with Aspergers but we want to know as much as we can about where he is or what comorbidities we may be dealing with. We want to be Autism Aware of our own child. He is becoming more and more of a challenge everyday ad it seems I’ve lost my easy button….
