It's Nice to Know
Even when you already have an idea of what you are dealing with, what is in store - it's nice to have a professional opinion. Dr. Ross Tatum's diagnosis was as I had anticipated: high functioning Autistic/boarder line Pervasive Developmental Disorder Otherwise Specified. He let me know that we are on the exact right track. Apparently the district we are living in has a phenomenal program for helping children with "diseases" such as B-Mans. People move to this specific district from other states just to be eligible to participate in these schools. So, we got lucky there -who knew? He also gave me the name of another doctor who helps parents work with the child at home as well as the district program, for a more well rounded approach.
