Hi and Welcome to my blog. Let me introduce myself and tell you a little bit about my plans for this blog.
I am a forty something year old mother of three children; two teenagers and an eight year old. It so happens that my middle child has autism. That fact both is and isn’t a big deal in life.
There’s already a huge volume of traffic relating to autism floating around the internet much of which presents autism as a mysterious puzzle to which we must find a solution.
With this blog I want to present something different. I want to take the mystery and fear out of autism and showcase it’s lesser known best side. Because just as in anyone’s life, yes there are challenges and frustrations that come with autism, but there’s a lot more besides.
My grand plan is to interview my son and post the resulting conversations here but of course this approach is dependant upon his cooperation which comes with no guarantees!
I will also add my own thoughts and insights along the way but let’s see how this goes.
