My beautiful son is 2 years old and for the past 5 months I have seen red flags for autism. I acted immediately and we have just been approved for NDIS. I'm accessing every resource I can to help him. I just don't know how to get past the pain and anxiety that I feel for him and myself. He has had some huge progress in the last 4 months - now pointing, his receptive language is getting heaps better, he is imitating, following simple instructions, identifying objects/pictures by pointing when asked. He couldn't do any of this 4 months ago.. But he isn't talking. It breaks my heart seeing his peers starting to talk. I need strategies or advice on how to overcome this and just be able to celebrate his gains. I know " comparison is the thief of joy" but its so hard not to compare.
