About Me

I am the author of each of the stories on this website and manage the site.  Yep, there's some bugs in the system and I am working on them.  I am not a website ninja - so have a bit of patience while I figure it all out.

Matt is my youngest son, moderately to severely autistic.  He has speech, but difficulty using speech, so we communicate heavily on the more subtle forms of communication.  Matt is learning to use the Internet and Facebook as a form of communication, but he is very wary of it, so it's not often.

Hi,

I am the mother of Michael, who will be 24 on 29 March. Michael is non-verbal and communicates via some gestures, pointing or pictures. We hope to set up an adult activity centre, so that Michael and others with special needs can learn to work and play and have friends and have fun, and that they can lead a meaningful, dignified and quality life.

About Me

My son Jayden is four years old and was diagnosed with asd about a year ago. When he was first diagnosed, I literally knew nothing about autism. It has been an emotional journey so far. I have learned so much in the last year. Jayden is amazing! He is fascinated with numbers, letters and he can put a puzzle together in no time. I feel blessed in so many ways. I would not change him for the world.

About Me

We began our autism journey in 2003.  We were fortunate the behavior psychologist realized the difficulties with a PDD-NOS diagnosis and she gave my son the diagnosis of autism.  It was 4 years later that the diagnosis was changed to Asperger's Syndrome.  I am  a project manager for the PTI in Texas.  My son is 16, works as a cashier at an electronics store and is enrolled in an Early College Program.
