Well it is upon us, March 7th is tomorrow, and BB is going through his ADOS test. I feel conflicted bc so many people are now saying they don’t really think he’s on the spectrum even though he has some “spectrummy behaviors”. D his play therapist even whipped out the DSM IV for me today and walked me through why she felt he wouldn’t meet the criteria. I should be over joyed right? But I just feel frustrated that shes not seeing theBB that I know, not seeing the behaviors that we see at home and school that have caused us to question all along about Autism. Ms B tries to reassure me that she thinks the ADOS will place him on the spectrum and he will get the services he needs. I just cant help but fear, what if he has a really good therapy type day and they don’t pick up on any of the stuff that I know is there? BB tends to do well in very calm quiet therapy like structured environments esp if there’s only him and one or two adults present. Like today with D. I’m trying to trust God I’m trying to lay this at his feet but its so stinking hard. We’ve had the PDDNOS mental health dx since Dec 2009. I’ve gotten used to the fact that BB has very high functioning Autism of some sort. But what if they were wrong? What then? I just want answers for my son, for our family. Please be praying for the utmost accuracy from this test tomorrow that the doctor and speech pathologist administering the test will see an accurate picture of BB and that I will be able to accept whatever the results turn out to be. Thanks friends.
