ATEC

Just had my husband do an ATEC for Bu so I wouldn't be biased...I agreed with all his answers in any case LOL
According to his answers, Bu's score is now 75. That's 7 points down from April, and down 28 points (from 103) since his 2nd birthday. The lower the score, the less severely the child is affected by autism.
Most importantly, anything over 80 is considered "severe autism. possibly requiring institutionalization."
Less than a year into the process, we are OUT of the "severe" category!!!!!  I cried, of course.
