Reply to Does anyone have special needs kids

I do! My amazing 12 year old son, Gavin, was born with developmental delays (fine & gross motor)/speech delays. He has intellectual disabilities, ADHD, a mild form of autism and an anxiety disorder. His developmental age averages to the equivalent of a 6 yr old, although some skills like self care and self control are more like that of age 2 or 3. It is believed that his disabilities were caused by a yet to be identified genetic issue. He is the most amazing little man and is full of love and kindness! He is also the hardest working kiddo I know!
