Before I get into my Ryan picture today, I realize that no one knows why I participate. I’m working on getting my blog up and running and haven’t gotten into the rythym of posting yet, so my story has yet to be told.
I’m not just here because I love Sunday and I think she is made of awesome-(she is!). My son was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome last year at age 11. It took me the better part of a year and I don’t even want to think about how many phone calls (55-according to my spreadsheet) to get the insurance to approve a neuropysch to do the testing, but it got done.
I had hoped that I would just be told that my child was simply so brilliant that his issues were due to boredom with his peers and school work. I am still working on getting my arms around everything. Honestly I am still not sure if I’m even spelling Asperger’s right most of the time without the aid of the spellcheck.
I do have to thank Sunday, and the rest of you. I enjoy reading your stories, and I especially enjoyed DM’ing Sunday when I was at an Asperger Parent Meeting about transitioning schools and having her send me a link to the Maryland IEP rules in seconds.
I am learning and trying to appreciate the journey. There are more stories to come as I am ready to tell them, but for now, onto the Ryany goodness.
