The late talker group found my blog (and this post). I've been banned.
Farewell late talker group. A few parting thoughts: educating myself about autism has been quite liberating. I don't live in fear of a label. I encourage anyone who is contemplating dodging the diagnosis to learn more about the neuroscience of atypical development. It's fascinating. If you're looking for hope and optimism, you don't need to duck your head in the sand.
