    Hello, I just added in today. I am a mother to an autistic child and also former close friend of someone who was never officially diagnosed. I am here to get advice and gain perspective! Thanks for having me. :)

    Welcome, glad to have you. :) We are more than happy to help you out in anyway we can, and make sure you and child have the best help and support you two need; what level has your child been diagnosed with? Most of us on here are level 1 and 2.

    He has Down syndrome as well, not sure about the level. He seems to have Asperger's. He is a great kid.

    Thank you for that-he is very well-behaved, but totally lost in his special interests!

    Ah so he's human first ,like all humans, a son of a neurotypical mother and he has autistic neurology which is a blessing ,then I presume at least one eye, two arms, two legs, not just an amorphous autistic child.
