Progress towards diagnosis

We finally heard back from Nationwide Children's Hospital on the referral from Joseph's pediatrician. They asked the same questions that everyone else has been asking, I gave the same answers, delayed speech, stereotyped behaviors, etc. They're sending a packet of papers for us to fill out, then it will be 5 more weeks before they will be seeing him.

The waiting is terribly frustrating.

Not to put all our eggs in one basket, we're still on a list for the study at OSU Medical Center's Nisonger Center. That process would include evaluation and diagnosis, then training for Kristy and myself on how to deal with Joseph.

We've been waiting for so long at this point, I think it would be a relief for him to be diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder.
