A Peek Inside

My son was 18 months old when he was first diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. A child psychologist came to our house and within 10 minutes of observing him told me he has ASD. I was crushed and had no idea what I was supposed to do. I called a close friend and was scared to even tell my own family. What is autism? Why my son? Why us?

At that moment, I took matters into my own hands and researched autism. The next year, I began taking him to many doctors. It was terrifying to admit that my son was autistic, but I am so thankful I did because I was able to get him services right away. 

Today, at age 7, he’s progressed so much and watching him accomplishing tasks makes my heart full.  When he began applied behavior analysis (ABA) therapy, in nine months he has accomplished things I never thought he’d be able to.  We’re so proud.
