I know most of this thread has been about behavioral disorders, and it is great that everyone is sharing what works for them. It is good to have supportive docs, and it sounds like a lot of trial and error. It sounds like you all make great choices for your children and go through a lot to make sure things are the best they can be.
To Evan's mom wondering about genetic screening. I am certainly no expert, but the 1% number probably refers to live births. I can't remember the number, but I read that a significant number of miscarriages are in cases where there is a genetic disorder. So, I think if miscarriages were included, the percentage would be higher. I don't mean to be morbid or anything, just trying to try explaining statistics.
