At age 5, Max was practically non-verbal, not toilet trained, had no friends, wasn’t interested in being social, music, or anything that involved others. He ate very few foods, mostly ham and cheese and raspberry juice and was nowhere near ready for kindergarten. The school put him on an IEP and deemed him “two standard deviations below normal”.

 

In addition to that I was sleep deprived because Max slept MAYBE 5 hours/day (if I was lucky) and I walked on pins and needles, not knowing what would trigger a complete meltdown. Our life was a hot mess. This is Max at age 10… He just wants to be a “regular kid”.
