Watched the slot tonight re ASD on the One Show with DH and he suddenly burst into tears as he realised that everything that they were explaining about ASD was DS to a tee.........

He has been happy to say that DS has dyspraxia and that things are because of his dyspraxia. Now he gets that it probably isn't just because of dyspraxia - it took a TV programme to make him accept it but I am pleased that he has now............. Now to get a dx grin

[hugs] Sometimes it does take something like that to show you what is going on, my mum was the same with ds3, she decided there was nothing wrong him until she watch something on the tv.
It was very good though wasn't it xx

That damn robot, my DD2 hates it! The Special autism school they showed is hers grin little Eden is her friend there. Can see mum might take the comment of "she doesnt present as an autistic child" with a bit of hmm

glad it helped you though ben10

I thought the robot was very freaky and there is no way that I would have it in my house. Given our problems with empathy etc in the last week with DS, it was perfect timing for DH though.

Lisa it's amazing that people who see our children for an hour or so can easily make comments like "she doesn't present as an autistic child" isn't it hmm
