spectrum or not?

I received the best call a mother can have today. Jordan's OT called and she doesn't believe that he is on the spectrum anymore. Deb has been with us since Jordan was 2. She was the first one to tell me she believed he had autism. She was the one who suggested I try coromega(cod liver oil). She also was the one who would push my son the most. Sometimes he would hate to see her walk through the door and other times he would be thrilled. In her opinion my son at 2 had severe autism at 5 he had moderate and at 7 is off the spectrum. Her opinions were usually correct because he would be scientifically tested later and it was just how she guessed.

Now I am not saying my son is cured. He still is delayed and will always have extreme sensory issues but he is able to understand now. He understands language and what is real and what is a joke. He asks the "wh" questions and can answer most questions asked of him. His attention span is still very short but we are working on that.

Oh yeah he has finally learned to tie his own shoes!! It has been a big day for us today.

Now my next challenge is to wean him back onto dairy. I have a farmer friend where I can get raw milk and I will be making Kefir and cheese for him myself. I am going to keep him gluten free at least until this summer because I have seen so much progress on the diet. I don't believe we will ever go back to eating anything processed. There is just to many chemicals in the food NOBODY should be eating those chemicals.
