- Nov 14, 2001Hello All,<br><br>I am a mom of an 8 year old boy
who I suspect has AS. I've never heard of this before
yesterday, I have my pediatrician reviewing all of my son's
files etc...<br><br>My questions: My son does have
about a 5 word vocabulary. And he has an abnormally
large head, which is opposite standard AS
characteristics. Otherwise the clinical description is him to a T.
Would these two thing rule out AS? <br><br>My son is on
15mg/day of ritalin, and .1mg/day of catapres for
sleeping. How does this compare to everyone else?
<br><br>Because of his fine motor problems, we've also found that
ASL didn't work for us. He uses a computerized
communication device called a Dynavox, which has been
absolutely wonderful.<br><br>I am so thrilled that after
over 7 years of searching, we may finally have a
diagnosis. I would love to talk to other parents about AS.
