Autism is like a puzzle...a puzzle with missing pieces...no known cause or cure. Just three years ago I didn't even really know anything about autism....my how life can change! Although alot still puzzles me, I believe knowledge is power and when Seth was diagnosed at 22 months old, I jumped into educating myself on how to help my child. Though I've read probably 25 books on autism, experience it the best teacher! I still have alot to learn and have days where I am totally lost in this new world I was thrown into, but I have stories, thoughts, encouraging moments and some advice I have learned along the way. Even just telling stories of day to day life can help other people to relate and feel like they are not alone in their life with an autistic child or children. I hope that you can get something from my blog..even if it's just a laugh or a "me too!" moment!
