This is my daughter. I decided after watching alot of videos on you tube, that I would show how autism and developmental delays affect my daughter. Two of my children are on the "autism spectrum". One is high functioning and the other is Abigail. She is not potty trained and her nuerologist said she may never train. She has low muscle tone, fluctuating hearing loss (wears hearing aids most of the time), wears glasses and afo's. She has been diagnosed with global developmental delay by the neurologist and autism by a psychologist, among many other things, but the neurologist thinks she has a genetic condition. All genetic testing so far has not turned up anything obvious. She did not "speak" until she was 3, and she is either very loud or very quiet. Her speech is almost unintelligible, but at least she will interact more now. She has had more than three years of early intervention and therapy. She used to be very quiet and more withdrawn. I will be posting more videos. I just wanted to start with a "nice" clip, one where she is not screaming or kicking and stuff. I am posting this because, I have spent hours upon hours watching other children with autism and other delays on the web and realize they are not all the same. I wondered where my daughter fit compared to other "special" kids. There are those who can talk and seem very normal, then there are those who just make grunting sounds and don't realize you are there. My daugher fits somewhere in between. I hope my videos will help someone who wonders if their child is like anyone elses.
