We were at ER yesterday with difficult child.....broke his finger when iron beam fell on his hand at skate park! I got a bit stuck when nurse asked me about any chronic illnesses......I did mention asthma, but was unsure.....do you mention Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) to them? Because is it really a chronic illness? Its psychological so is it important to mention during a physical accident? I think it did help that they knew to have more patience when he was 'unable' to walk to the x rays....to weak! OMW! Had to be pushed!!!! Or when he got terribly anxious during the x rays! Or when he totally inappropriatly showed every one his broken finger! Any thoughts?
