Re: Introduction

I am mother to Jake. He is 14 years old. He was diagnosed with PDD-NOS when he was five years old. He was diagnosed with Kanner's Syndrome (early infantile autism) when he was 12 years old by the Autism Research Institute E2. He was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome, Inattentive ADHD, and Dysgraphia when he was 13.

I tend to believe that he falls somewhere in the middle. He had signs of autism from birth. There was never any regression. He had speech delays. He has an above average IQ. He doesn't really seek out friends. He likes to be alone.

I am the co-founder of the Lee's Summit Autism Support Group. My co-founder and I started our group in November, 2006. We are working with other families to make much needed changes in the education system in the state of Missouri.
