They recommended early intervention at the age of 2. By the time my son was three years old I realized something was different about him. The school called me in for a meeting because of these new behaviors. But they couldn’t give me any answers. I went to a specialist and I finally discovered what it was. They mentioned something about a spectrum. I had to look it up to figure out what it meant. Long story short, I went through several stages of emotions as I began to accept the news. I needed a support group, but I didn’t have one. I was a single mom just trying to give my son the support he needed. I didn’t know what to do. The school was no help but once again I was determined to give my son the support he needed. I was able to connect with a few friends who work in the field and they were able to give me the support I needed so I could be there for my son. Through this process, I learned how to accept the circumstances, but I realize that everyone doesn’t have what I had. That’s why I’ve created a support program for moms who where I was. It’s called From Suspecting to Accepting: How to cope with the full spectrum of emotions In this program you’ll eliminate… D.E.N.I.A.L. The emotion preventing acceptance of the diagnosis A.N.G.E.R. The emotion stopping you from taking control of the situation G.U.I.L.T. The emotion that places blame (that you don’t need or deserve) G.R.I.E.F. The emotion preventing you from focusing on what could be I believe you can support your child through this process, but only when you learn to support yourself first.
