Before the diagnosis: Zero communication


This is Cali at 20 months. Four months before suspecting autism, and nine months before the official diagnosis. Notice my CONSTANT talking with no response or awareness from her. In retrospect, I can completely see how there was zero back and forth communication, but at the time I was completely blind to her lack of communication and distant behavior. Or maybe I did notice it some, but didn’t think much of it with her being my first child.

  1. I had no idea these videos were all here. It is so awesome to watch these and see Cali’s progress in the past couple years. Its amazing how much she has progressed since being diagnosed.
