Hello all, is there any parents with children with Autism?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I am sure there's a thread for this or maybe not, but is there any mother's out there that have any children that have Autism?

My son is 6, he is non verbal, but has a great school and the staff is great too, they really know their stuff and keep on top of it...

 

I am in the USA by the way....

 

and my name is Molly

Welcome Molly! To connect with other mamas where with children with autism, try posting in the Special Needs Parenting forum; I've seen a number of threads there related to parenting a child with autism. Also, you might interested in our Childhood Years forum (lots of mamas there with 6 year olds) and our Learning at School forums. Please do browse through and check out any and all of the forums that interest you because there are lots of lively and interesting discussions in all the Mothering forums! redface.gif

Hi.  We have an 11yr old son with Autism so I know where you are coming from.  If you need a bit of a pick-me-up, check out my husband's book - Autism is Infectious.  It's full of funny, interesting short stories about our life raising Tyler.  It's written from a parent to parent perspective and seems to help others well.  Just look for it on Amazon.

I just joined up today, I have always been reluctant to join a community to dx my son's issues, but I need some support.  My wife and I have a nine year old boy with autism, living in Snohomish County above Seattle.  Involved with RDI, Seattle Children's Hospital, all sorts of therapies, GF diet for 6 years.  Sam is a great kid, but is fairly low functioning with speech and dynamics, but is really a pretty cool kid.

We moved here from Portland, OR five years ago, maybe six actually, to be closer to the family.
