I'm new here. I should have joined years ago! My DS, Evan, is 5 and was diagnosed at age 2 1/2. Last year he was also diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome (which is on the autism spectrum).
Prior to the AS dx, we attributed his behavioral issues to highs and lows, particularly lows.
Does anyone else have this experience? There are many days I'm still not convinced the AS dx is accurate - even after 3 independent evaluations.
What I'm referring to are crazy antics, aggressiveness, hyperactivity, tantrums which are beyond the "normal" scope for a 5 year old.
I'd love to hear from you!
