Bio mum (of cherub) rang tonight and said she went to the doctor to get a referral for little cherub 18mos, and was told she might be autistic. I should be the doctor, didn't I say that two months ago? My concern is that poor little cherub won't get any early intervention therapy, or follow up therapy.... How I wish DOCHS will make an order... I would love little cherub to get signing therapy so she could at least communicate. However, they probably won't until a couple years have passed to prove that bio mum isn't getting help for her... and it could be that long, which means it will be almost too late... It's so frustrating. Now we just need her to get the diagnosis on thte little boy (3) who already has symptoms of encopresis, and behavioral problems; speech problems. I'm tipping Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD); with a few other oppositional disorders (environmentally caused) I need chocolate - i'm so stressed!
