My 4 year old son has been diagnosed with a moderate speech delay, cognitive delay, and motor delay since he was about 2. He is in a special education preschool where he recieves speech therapy, but no one would tell me why he had these delays. My cousin has a step-son with Asperger's and she spent about 5 minutes with my son and told me he acts just like her son,and I should have him checked for Asperger's. I started researching and educating myself. My son displays 58 of the 60 signs of Autism. He seems to fall under Asperger's, but I was told there is no language delay in Asperger's, and he is still extremely delayed in speech. I have an appointment with my pediatrician on Wednesday and I want all information so that he is diagnosed properly. Could he have a speech delay with Asperger's, or does it automatically put him in another part of the spectrum?
