Caleb turned 7 years old yesterday and he had a good day :-) Good days are sometimes few and far between so to have a good day on such an important day as his birthday is one of those "Thank you Jesus" days.
We went to see the neurologist yesterday because last week at Caleb's eval at Regional Center he got so aggressive that he spent upwards of the last hour of the eval trying to run out the door (which me made it to the parking lot a couple times) and when restrained he would punch, kick, scratch and head butt. Regional Center has always said he is high functioning but the neurologist said yesterday that when you see that kind of aggression that it is normally in the lower functioning Autistic? I know he is regressing and not catching up developmentally so this makes since to me BUT has anyone else heard that before? Is your child aggressive and if so where do they land on the spectrum? Caleb is going to be 7 years old in a couple weeks... I worry about his aggression when he's bigger then me... What do I do then?
Hi my name is Serena and I started blogging about my sweet Autistic wonder boy named Caleb last year at the advice of his ABA therapist. My blogs have been wonderful to go back and read on the good days and bad days so I can see first hand in the midst of it all... life goes on and yes... things do get better!
I posted a few of my blogs from the past so they may seem out of sorts since the are kinda out of "order" but I find my days are a lot like that too :0)
If your interested in seeing them in order... they are at calebsmommie.blogspot.com BUT I do really like this Autism blog spot and am excited to sit and read other stories.
Have a super fantastic night... here where I am... its bedtime! whoo hoo... that means its quiet time... that time of day I SO look forward too.
Thankful is the first word that came to mind when thinking about what to title this post. Is that really an accurate word? Yes, I believe it is truly the right word for all I am feeling.
This past week was FULL of service dog stuff and SO much fun! We met a wonderful family at Disneyland on Tuesday that allowed us to hang out with them and see how their service dog helps their son at Disneyland and the mom was SO gracious with answering questions that I asked and even questions I hadn't thought of. The next day my Aunt came to evaluate Bella and she had wonderful insight for me and showed me SO much to work with Bella on and has been such an answer to prayer these past few months and will continue to be that for us with Bella. Her love and support of us wanting a service dog has been such a HUGE HUG at a time I really needed someone to understand. THANKFULLY... we are not going to have to add another dog to our family... BELLA WILL BE OUR SERVICE DOG! PRAISE THE LORD!!
My husband and I have 2 of the most wonderful little boys that we adopted. We also have 3 of the most amazing birth children... without them I don't know where we'd be. My husband and I were high school sweethearts and have been married for 23 years. We have an amazingly blessed life! 6 years ago we brought home an 8 week old very tiny, very sweet baby boy. We knew he was a drug baby and that he would change our lives forever... what we did not ever think is that what would be changing our lives is that when he was 3 1/2 years old he would be diagnosed with Autism.
