  14. I don't think the guy in the picture has Down's, nor did I get the
    impression that one was supposed to think so. Just my two cents.

    Eek, please don't scare me about the FL state school system. I can't afford
    private.

    Ed, you and I have a lot more in common than I thought. I have twin sons,
    who turned six last March. While they don't have Down's, they are
    developmentally delayed. I was out from work yesterday because they're
    undergoing yet another battery of exams, in the hopes of determining what
    label will be slapped upon them.

    We first noticed problems with out boys when they didn't walk until fifteen
    months. My wife's son from her previous marriage walked at nine months.
    This set off a few alarms, but nothing major. Then at age two, they still
    had virtually no spoken words. Twin B actually had a couple of words at
    about 1 1/2 ("Bear Book") but only used them for about a month, then nothing
    again. We were terrified that our boys might be autistic (and still haven't
    completely ruled that out). At my wife's urging, our Ped finally arranged
    for them to have an evaluation at the age of 2 1/2, and they were deemed
    "developmentally delayed" and entered into FL's program(s). They attended
    the ARC (which I think is the Association for Retarded Citizens) at that
    time, and until the age of three, when they were evaluated again (same
    results) and were admitted to the regular FL school system (pre-K). We'd
    seen a neurologist (who seemed rather annoyed with us - no help at all) and
    a geneticist, who told us he was certain that their problem was genetic, he
    just didn't know what, and wanted us to come back in a year, and Twin B has
    had an MRI and been diagnosed with mild PVL (periventricular leukamalasia
    (or some similar spelling)). They spent two years in pre-K and are now
    finishing their last days of Kindergarten, and both boys will be admitted to
    1st grade this fall (mainstream). Scares the hell out of my wife and I
    because we know how far behind they are. They've been getting speech and
    occupational therapy for years now, and are improving, but we really wonder
    if they can keep up at all in 1st grade. Both boys know their numbers,
    colors, ABC's, etc. that kindergarteners need to know, they can even
    sound-out words to some extent. Both are verbal, but so far behind the
    others, it's painful.

    Their speech therapist recommended them for this summer program at the
    University of Florida, and we've been going to meeting after meeting where
    they're being seen by hearing and speech specialists, psychologists, and
    another neurologist (this one is good, though). We think that come this
    Tuesday, we will FINALLY get some kind of answers as to what is causing our
    boy's delays. We already learned something from the hearing exams - that
    Twin B apparently has an auditory processing disorder. He hears fine, but
    it's not being processed correctly.

    Funny thing is, before my boys were born, I was totally uncomfortable around
    people with "special needs." To be honest, they gave me the creeps! That
    all changed when my kids were born, and there were some classmates in their
    pre-K who did have Down's Syndrome. I just want to hug those kids now
    (okay, I'm getting too mushy here).

    Give your son a big hug for me. Where in Florida are you? Maybe we might
    could meet up one day. I'll teach you disc golf!

  20. i applaud your attitude and commend you.

    ditto.

    I don't think I could cope if it were me, I just don't think I'm
    strong enough.

    Parents like Ed prove there are still decent folk out there.
