1426Re: [Families of Angelman Syndrome] New to Group
- May 6, 2006I feel the same way that you do about not fitting. My
son was diagnosed with Autism at 2. We are going
through our second set of tests for Angelman right
now. The first test for deletion came back negative.
My son will be 4 in a month. My son has a small head
but knock on wood....no seizures. Besides the
seizures what other signs does your son have? I have
accepted the autism diagnosis because I have lived
with the belief he had it since he was 16 months. I
have already grieved over the autism diagnosis and am
scared to have to try and fit in somewhere else.
