1. I not only had to learn my child as a unique individual but learn him through his struggles with Autism.
2. Every child truly is different.
3. Every child is truly gifted.
Once he was diagnosed our journey of discovery began! I went from figuring out what his triggers were to what special gifts were hidden within his beautiful mind. I have discovered that my son is a brilliantly beautiful and affectionate soul. He loves sports & has a fondness for water....he loves swimming. As I learned him, he has learned my role and responsibility in his life. By age three my son fully understood that I am not just his mother but I am a strong positive PROTECTIVE force of constant loving energy and support in his life. The world has to come through me before getting to him.
