I have a 5.5 year old DD who was diagnosed in May this year. She has always been a really mellow kid with very few tantrums or meltdowns, particularly when younger. I would describe her as quite 'passive' in many ways and she generally just goes with the flow. She has just in the last 6 months discovered some defiance and difficulties with emotional regulation which has lead to some 'meltdowns'. In addition, she has become much more fixed in her desires and routines, which proves difficult at times. I think that although many kids on the spectrum experience meltdowns (for various reasons), there are also those kids who are more mellow and passive. It sounds like you're really on the ball with noticing difficulties he is having and implementing early intervention. The waiting and seeing is hard.

Thank you sajimum. It's good to know some think I'm on the ball with early intervention as I know some think we are over reacting or something (I'd rather listen to the paediatrician and his child care workers that are around other kids every day though).

As we enter our 3rd chat thread. I just want to extend a giant virtual hug to all of us. We are doing a great job, and all deserve medals, and chests to put them on, and a statue made completely out of gold..
Great work ladies, keep up the good fight, and remember you are AMAZING.

I thought I'd stick my head in and say hi. After an appointment with a specialist over the weekend, it has been confirmed that our 3yo DD has ASD.
It hasn't come as a shock to me because I have suspected something wasn't right since she was 2yo.
I'm handing it well, my DH on the other hand is in a bit of denial and still thinks she is just 'a late talker'.
