    Yea they are doing chromosome testing on bloods/urine samples. One that they mentioned can be present when ASD is present too.

    My daughter was born with the dark one and the other one appeared when she was 1. It's on her lower back. I have concerns as they look odd but doctors say it's just a birth mark

    Hopefully all is well, must be stressful on top of your other concerns. I mentioned you in another thread earlier this week to see how the paed appointment went. We had our psych assessment today.

    Sorry Hun I must have missed that. It was full on. They have sent off all the referrals that we will need. How did you go with the psych? Did they just observe?

    They said they were looking at neuro fibro matosis? And fragile x? One of them can occur alongside asd I read.

    Wow it does sound pretty full on. The good thing is that they are taking your concerns seriously and investigating all the possibilities. I know fragile X is associated with autism. I haven't heard of neuro fibro matosis. Will have to google that one.

    The assessment was really good, the psych did some tests with DS that were basically just like playing games (matching, putting shapes in holes, stacking, etc). He was checking his ability to solve basic problems, plan action, understand concept like big/small etc. It was actually really interesting and he explained everything as we went.

    In the end he doesn't think DS has autism, which is great news, but he does think he has a developmental delay and expects that when he scores/reviews the tests it will place him at about an 18mo level (DS is 2y8m). So with his language delay as well, he thinks the behaviors are explained by developmental & language delays. He does want to review him later in the year once he's had more speech therapy and and we'll also be starting OT to help with the erratic/disorganized play style and social interaction.

    Must feel great having a plan in place. Hopefully seeing the OT and speechie can help get him further ahead.

    DD has 3 Mongolian spots on her lower back. Look just like faint bruises.
