Today is the day

Today is the day we found out what we have suspected for over a year. Jonah received an autism diagnosis. While it comes with mixed feelings, we are glad we can now move in a forward direction. Jonah was evaluated last November and received a misdiagnosis. We were told at that time that he was "going at his own pace". We accepted the news and went along, knowing that something was still being missed. The new doctor was able to correctly diagnosis. Today was reassuring to know we are doing a lot of what needs to be done at home. We will work on beefing up his IEP at school in the next couple of weeks and start private occupational and speech therapies next week.
