Sadly, Loyola is about 9 hours from us. We are about an hour north of Shreveport. Currently, I'm dealing with LSU medical center in Shreveport. The meeting yesterday went fairly well, although the panel I met with had four developmental psych people, one Speech Therapist and NO audiologist. They were definitely gunning for an ASD dx. I did get them to refer him to the LSU hearing and speech center for a new round of hearing screenings, so I guess that was a small victory. If LSU doesn't help, I think I will head for the Dallas Ear Institute. It is only about two hours away. What is 18p (from your earlier post) ?
