My 3 year old son was just recently diagnosed with mild autism. His diagnosis is primarily from his speech delay and social interactions. He doesnt really have any major behavioral problems (spinning,etc). He already goes to school for early intervention and will be attending a preschool with delayed and typical preschoolers. I'm really just looking for people to talk to who understand and maybe some advice. Its not been easy to accept. Also those who have a mild diagnosis, have you seen growth with intrventions? Thanks

Yes...Early Intervention was great in my area. Also, we had some mild therapy done for our son. Applied Behavior Analysis. Very tough...but very worth it.
