Autism

In December 2013, our son, Emmett, received an official diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
I’ve collected past posts which include some of my insanity reflections on our challenges we’ve met and his delays before we knew his diagnosis, as well as our life moving forward: learning how to help Emmett grow to the fullest of his potential.

I title this collection “Emmett’s Little World.”
You are welcome to follow along and contribute your knowledge about Autism. We thank you!
