Learning that your child has autism (or Autism Spectrum Disorder) can be a very heartbreaking, depressing, and overwhelming. And learning to accept that your child has autism can be very, very difficult. We know — we’ve been there and it took quite a bit of time and a lot of support from our families to get out of that emotional rut. Acceptance, though, was a necessary step in every story about autism. It was not until we finally accepted our child’s unique situation that we were able to move on and start working on helping him.
One Message to Parents of Recently Diagnosed Children
If there’s one message that we’d like to share with parents of children who as recently diagnosed with autism, it’s this — IT GETS BETTER. We wish someone would have told us this when we were thinking very negative thoughts after we learned that our child has autism. It gets better. With your help, your child will get better.
Why We Set Up This Website
We set up this website to share information on autism (including news and updates on current treatment methodologies) and our own experience in raising our child with autism. We also invite other parents who want to share their autism experiences and stories to contact us.
