Adam's Journey

Homeopathic Healing of Autism

D-Day – February 2, 2011

on February 9, 2011

Adam was diagnosed on February 2, 2011 with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). 

*Sigh*

I’m at a loss of what to write which is probably an indication that not even my own thoughts have been collected and processed.  My heart is broken.  That much I know.  Even though we always had our concerns it still stings to hear the diagnosis and I’m having a hard time letting go of the hope (however slight) that it would be something else.  Something that “sounds better than autism.”  Like a language or communication disorder.  The glimmer of hope has faded.

I don’t know what else to say.  In many respects I’m glad that the diagnosis will open doors for services and funding but I’m also angry with the medical system which only goes so far as to label these children and then abandon them.  It was apparent that there was no need for the specialist to see Adam again.

*Sigh*  I’ve been retyping this post for several days now.  I’m too defeated to go over the details of the assessment so I’ll go ahead and post. 

Please say a prayer for my special little boy.  His future is shaping up to be full of challenges and judgement by a world who doesn’t understand him.
