Children's Hospital made it double-secret-ultra-official today that D-boy definitely falls into the Autistic Disorder Spectrum. On the testing scale, 1-6 is "normal" and 7-10 "autism." He hit with a seven, as mild as you can be and still make the cut.

It really isn't a surprise. The only thing I really learned is that although he does have mild autism, it's not Asperger's Syndrome. Although all cases of Aspergers have mild autism, not every case of mild autism involves Aspergers. Sets and subsets and all that.

I've been calling a whole new bunch of people. I should have a few definite answers tomorrow.
