PPS says child is "special" but doctors do not: what?
So, we haven't officially launched the "community" function of the site, but we are glad you are using it! A mama recently posted there, and we thought we'd better post her question on the front page to see if someone can lend some insight:
Anyone had the experience of Portland Public Schools Early Intervention diagnosing your little on the Autism Spectrum, but your Pediatrician, Ped Neurologist, Occupational Therapist, Speech Therapist, and Ped Behaviorist all disagree, and say no Autism, no Asperger, no Spectrum? I'm totally confused and baffled. I didn’t want to sign their evaluation, but I did. Am I being a baby and not dealing with reality of labels? Any words of wisdom would be welcome. Thanks!
