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.

Love working with kids that have special needs. I am currently taking care of a little boy with Down's syndrome. He is two and is perfect - my best friend. Hope to learn more about special needs kids. I have not had any exposure to Autism and would love to find out more about it.
