    15 yr old son with Asperger Syndrome (AS)

    I have been searching for the better part of my afternoon for a forum which is geared more towards my son's specific diagnosis, rather than a general diagnosis of "special needs". I was happy to find this site!
    Now a little about myself and my son. My son is a 15 yrs old who has had developmental delays since birth. He was originally recommended for an evaluation by his pediatrician at age 2. He was evaluated and placed at the Happiness House to begin addressing his motor and speech delays as well as his sensory issues. He remained in a special ed class until he went to kindergarten. We continued to get services, although the majority of them were not through school. At age 4 he was diagnosed PDD/AS and began medication to help modify some of the behavioral issues we were having. Jumping ahead, we are now on his 4th psychiatrist and his diagnosis has not changed much. He was ruled out on the PDD and his diagnosis became AS. He also has some ADHD and continues to have some mild sensory issues. Every new accomplishment (regardless of how big or small) is exciting to me as I have seen such progress over the years. I honestly did not think we would ever get as far as we have!
    Looking forward to reading other life stories and troubleshooting everyday dilemmas.
