Hi everyone! Does anyone have a child/adult with autism and also ocd? My son has autism and ocd, along with other symptoms. I was wondering how you go about handling these dual diagnosis when they become a bit overwhelming?
I just picked up this thread and wanted to offer some information. I undestand it's frustrating not knowing wha tthe problem might be, but recognizing that something is off. Please try not to think the worst.
It's hard to say based on the information you provide, but these problems can be attributed to visual problems and/or language disorders. Some expressive language disorders make it look like a child isn't learning, when in fact she is.
There can be short-term memory problems but not I.Q. problems.
It is important to get a differential diagnosis, if there is a diagnosis. Some children do develop at a slower rate. Often, though, delays at age 4 indicate some problem. It could be attention issues only.
It might help to take a look at my site. Many of my posts describe characteristics of different disordes and explain how to recognize one from the other.
My site is Milestone Mom.http://www.milestonemom.com. I am a pediatric occupational therapist with over 16 years experience.
Dawn great that you have the school situation sorted out for your son - at least for now.
But when you feel swamped and ready to tear your hair again, do remember to contact those online support groups. I know from personal experience how helpful and comforting a support group can be: an island of sanity in a sea of crazy.

I received this today from my Conputer/Internet Guru - Kim Komando. I only download what she has tested and approved.
If your child is autistic, you might find this helpful.
A robot is helping autistic children understand emotions. Kaspar the robot looks like a boy. It can simulate playing and laughing. Researchers say the robot is incredibly effective in helping autistic children become more affectionate. There are iPad apps made to help with autism, too. Click here for the best ones. >>
Dawn, I really feel for you, mate. No wonder you feel like "snapping." I got hot under the collar just reading your post. I REALLY think you would find joining a support group for the parents of child diabetics very helpful. You would not feel so isolated and alone. Talking to people who have the same problems (and maybe some solutions as well) will embower you no end!!
Go online and search out groups near you - or even just online. Keep in touch and let me know what you find.
