My 3-year-old son has been identified as having a speech and developmental delay. He also has some anxiety and socialisation difficulties. I am waiting to have him assessed for Autism but the earliest appointment I can get is in March (with a Paed who specialises in the area). He sees his regular Paed in 2 weeks time and starts Speech Therapy tomorrow. I don't know if he is Autistic or not. I'm confused. Sometimes I think he is just travelling at his own pace and is very socially shy and awkward as I was as a child. Other times I feel that he may be Autistic. I don't know what to believe. I was hoping for some advice from parents who have been in similar situations. What can I do/read/ask/see that could help me and him?
