Gillian's Autism

I am trying to be my happy, positive self at the moment, just as I have been the past week or so........... but I just got a call from the Neurologist office about my Gillian, and they scored her Childhood Autism Rating SCale and she falls under "Severly Autistic."
ugh. Thats really all I can say.................
Like I said, trying to be very positive here. They said its very possible that she can be SEVERELY autistic and be high functioning as well. That is a relief.
Upon looking at her you'd never guess she was.............I am thankful for that. And, this opens more doors for her, I think.

Ugh. I think I should go get me a HUGE coldstone..........

I read your post and just felt compelled to respond. Its really hard to hear news like that. I think a Coldstone is a wonderful idea.

Oh so sorry to hear the news and yes a Coldstone is likely in order!! but there are a lot of agencies out there now to help and give you guidance etc check with the Dr I am sure he can help!! and a lot are VERY high functioning! I work with special needs children and so know a bit about what you are dealing with! hang in there and seek any and all help you can find!!! it will not only help Gillian but you as well and the family!! sending big hugs to you!!!

Gillian, you and your family are in my thoughts.

Sounds so strange now but be thankful for this you never know what a situation beings, I have personally found that what one thinks of as a bad/difficult situtaion becomes a blessing and a awesome chance to grow as individual and a family.
Blessing to you and yours this holiday.
