Here is a pretty interesting op-ed piece from the New York Times about autism and autoimmune diseases.
And here is a response from Autism Speaks, which is hosting a web chat tomorrow about it all.
And here we are, just waiting another week for our full screening. We’ve been wondering if we’re completely misguided — Jack has made huge strides lately in communication and sharing and just seems totally different. I keep wondering if he was just a bit behind and had a huge developmental surge, and now everything is fine. And then the other night at dinner, he stared into space and talked to himself the whole time. I still don’t think that’s all that unusual. Who doesn’t do that?
But we’ll follow through with the screening.
And so we wait.
