Feeling a little better about Andy this morning

I found this blog post late last night, and it gave me hope again. It is about an autistic woman who didn't walk until 2, crawled between 3-4, had an IQ of 70, but went on to get advanced degrees.


It is so hard when you really don't know what is going on in their little heads. I don't even think a crystal ball would help, because I wouldn't want to know the future if it isn't good. I am going to try and search for more success stories, to keep me motivated. I really need it right now.

  1. Hi,
    I just came across your blog from BBC. And Andy sounds very simliar to my Lauren. We have been on a wild ride with her too. She did not reach for objects until 8-9 months and holding up her own sippy cup was a huge celebratory success for us as well - she finally did it around 17-18 months. Hang in there - I read through most of your posts and I have the same concerns re: cognition. At least Andy has a few words...that's a good sign - we are working with Lauren just on vocalizing at this point. She is almost 20 months. Just wanted to say hi, and that I'm cheering for Andy from the sidelines.
