I saw a behavioral therapist yesterday that pretty much laid it out that my son has autism. I had heard the possibility of him being autistic from 2 of the people I had seen but no one had laid it out black and white. Even though it was hard to hear and I have cried like 7 times since yesterday I feel like at least I am finally on the road to really helping him. I think I denied the obvious symptoms (rocking, repetitive words, sensory issues, head banging) bc I didn’t want it to be true.
