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.
OMG that poster is PERFECTION!!
And YOU are full of awesome as well!
That is bloody brilliant!!!! And I wanna watch. I totally wanna watch….
And my son’s 8 with asperger’s….my spell checker didn’t recognize the word, I had to add it in….you should see what it comes up with it type in the word perseverate!!
Yes, it’s TOTALLY brilliant! LOve this! and I totally wanna watch!
GREAT POST!. It is time to make the insurance company your bith!
After Ryan makes the insurance company his bitch can he teach me how to do that too? Would love if our insurance company would pay form some more speech thereapy/social skills groups, and about a thousand other things! Great post!
You tell ’em, Ryan! I’m fairly new to the bloggy world as well!
Yesssssss. Asset to the blog world with crap like this!
Yes. Yes I do.
oh yes i want to watch! and then i want you to come handle my insurance company too!
We all need Ryan to make the insurance companies his bitch. My son wasn’t dx’d until he was 8 1/2 (he’ll be 11 in June). It took me a lot of phone calls, a lot of doctors telling me I was a “crazy” mom, and lots of other obstacles, but here we are. Welcome to the journey. The rest of us, and Ryan, will help you through it.
LOVE it! (But I do have to admit that I have yet ::knock on wood:: had any arguments about payment for things)
Yowza can I watch?? And when Ryan’s done, can he come take my insurance company down too?? Ahhh a girl can dream!!
