Aug 11, '08Quote from mercyteapotI may have told you about them, but I know a family whose son has the "classic" autism where the child appears to be developing completely normally until age 2 1/2 and then completely and irreversibly withdraws.Sorry, but not all children with autism are different early on. If a child has the type of autism where they develop typically and then start losing previously acquired skills, there is nothing to be ''honest'' about. And I don't think it is ever a good idea to suggest that parents of children with special needs are somehow in denial... we've got plenty of professionals to do that for us, haven't we?
