We took H. to see a pediatric neurologist in IF a few weeks ago. He diagnosed her as being autistic. We are having such a hard time with her. We can't communicate very well. She is doing better in trying to let us know what she wants but it is still so difficult. Ever since K. was born H.'s behaviors have skyrocketed too. (this we were expecting though).
There was one day that H. and I were out running errands and we stopped by McDonald's for lunch. Afterwards when we were walking back to the car she ran between two parked cars into the parking lot and was hit by a car. Luckily she wasn't severly hurt, just scratches and bruises. Ever since then I have been a nervous wreck if she is out of my sight for very long.
We also had an EEG done on her and found that she was having little mini seizures in her sleep. So he put her on some seizure medication. The doctor wants her to have speech and occupational therapy outside of school. We are having a terrible time finding a place that can do those services with a child so young. Family and coworkers are helping us get more information. I hope to get H. into those sevices soon.
Needless to say, it has been a stressful couple months with H. I hope she starts doing better soon. I have been so worried about her.
