Autism Preschool

Several years ago we started having people tell us that they thought our third son was hard to understand. It seemed like different people who interacted with him at different times would mention that his speech was really difficult to understand. I hadn’t really noticed it, but it was because we lived with him and were around him every day.

With the different comments I started paying closer attention. Then we started noticing that he wouldn’t eat with us and that he didn’t really want to be around people. He was showing some anger and that he didn’t want to listen to us. We started working with several different specialists to see what we could do to help him.

I had one person ask me if I had him checked for autism. Then I had a few other people tell me that they didn’t think he was autistic. It was difficult to weed through so many different things, but eventually we were able to get him the help that he needed and he ended up growing out of some of the characteristics.

At the time I talked to several of my friends that did have autistic children. It was very interesting to learn so much about autism and all of the different things out there to help with children that are autistic. Many of my friends strongly recommended that if he was autistic that one of the best things we could do to help him is to get him into a preschool that dealt with that so that he would get help early on.
