      I 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.
