    it's the mark of humanity. Besides which, if it helps anyone else understand what might be happening with their own child, so much the better.

    Remember, we knew it was autism thanks to my wife's training; if we had gone by the standard "checklist" approach before age four, we would have been lost; he actually contra-indicates for autism by some markers!

    I'd rather let a thousand guilty men go free than chase after them.

      My son is more imaginative and more touchy than is 'typical'. But in other ways he's so autistic I don't see how they kept trying to 'rule it out' for his first five years. Every one of our kids is different. Very very few are 'classically' autistic in every way.
