Today has been a very weird day. I don’t know where to put myself, or what I am feeling.
Today was the day of the final diagnostic meeting with the team Children’s Psychology unit, where they confirmed that my 6 1/2yr old son as autistic spectrum disorder, or specifically ‘high functioning asperger’s’.
So there you go.
It’s better to know what your are dealing with, than not, and this confirms what we have long thought, but it’s still strange to hear those words. Upsetting and a relief. And really, he is just the same is he was yesterday, it doesn’t change anything. He’s a wonderful boy, so bright and passionate.
I’ll keep it brief, I’m not really sure if I should blog about it here, as it’s not just my business, but my son’s, too.
Anyway, I decided to make a treasury full of the things Robert really likes, take a look, and feel free to make a comment!
