Hi all, I would love to hear from parents of kids with Autism/Asperger's and your experiences with having more than one child with the condition. We have a 7 year old who is ok and our 3 year old who is Autistic, he was diagnosed in April this year. First of all hubby and I are seriously considering having another baby, hubby isn't at all concerned and says if we have another child with ASD we will just deal with it, me on the other hand is left wondering what are the chances! We are going to speak with a genetics counciller to get some advice also but I was hoping to hear from parents who have been there done that already. Who has more than one child with an ASD and who has multiple children and only one child with an ASD?
Also another question which is a little off topic, my 3.5 is currently still not toilet trained and wears nappies full time, can someone please give me some advice on how I could go about starting to potty train my boy and have any of you got any success stories and how old were your child/ren when they finally understood what toilet training was all about.
Sorry for all the questions, I am still very new to all of this and any advice would be fanstastic.
