Welcome To Our Autism Journal!
One thing that I’ve learned is the word autism can mean different things to different people effected by it. They may share some of the same signs and traits but no two people on the spectrum are the same.
My son was 3 1/2 years old when he was first diagnosed with an ASD (autism spectrum disorder). He is now 11. You can read a little bit about him here in the “About Us” section. I decided to create this online journal to share our journey. At the same time I hope to help enlighten and educate others, as well as, promote awareness of this roller coaster ride.
There will always be good, bad and ugly days. I will try to touch on them all. One thing for certain is no matter what type of day it is for us, I will never give up on my child. I am committed to him and his diagnosis. I will be his voice for as long as I’m on this earth. Right by his side.
Autism and Us! ❤ Forever!
