  4. I used to resent the visit to the pediatrician’s office and having to check the boxes on what my child was doing at a certain age. My son was born panhypopitutarism and never was on the level of other children. Very depressing.

      God always give us the best. Your son still will be the best son in your life. There is a plan from God from your life to make you understand what a life for.

      • Yes, he was the best son anyone could ask for. We would not have changed a thing about him.

        After awhile, our pediatrician made sure I did not receive those forms to fill out. And he did the same for other patients with children with special needs. Instead he helped us celebrate each new thing our children did learn to do. He is a special man.

  7. Great summary–I’m so glad you’re putting it out there. Info like this being readily available made it possible for my grandson to be diagnosed with autism shortly after his second birthday. A year of nutrition therapy (mostly follinic acid and omega fatty acids) along with intervention by an early childhood education specialist has made a huge difference for him. He’s three-and-a-half now, and you really have to know he has autism to recognize it in him. No concern about mainstreaming at all.
