T1D and autism, anyone?


(Karyn) #1

My 14 year old son was diagnosed T1D three weeks ago. His previous labels include autism and PANDAS (an auto-immune disorder causing a multitude of challenges with functioning and overall health). In terms of ASD, he is pretty high functioning, but the latest diagnosis has caused me to re-think our long-term plan of his care. Again.
I’m looking for a families like mine… already used to the “special needs” label, but now trying to re-group again.
