Your child has autism.
After years and months of fear, confusion and worry, you now know the main reason for the difficulties that your child faces.
Yet you still don't understand why they behave and do things in certain ways.
You desperately want answers to your questions like:
- What is autism, really?
- Why won’t my child wear particular clothes?
- Why does my child flip out in a manner of seconds?
- How can I help my child to communicate more?
- Where do I start when explaining autism to my friends and family?
- How can we manage undesired behaviors?
- Where is the support??
- How can I help my child get the most from school?
- How do I take care of myself, without feeling guilty?
- How do find me, in this equation of parenting special needs?
For 8, LONG, agonizing years I suffered in silence -
Afraid to reveal and even admit, my son Zachary has autism.
You see, I know how your stomach churns when you hear your child isn’t hitting the same milestones as other kids their age.
I know the sadness and even guilt of wanting to ignore the quirks and nuances that your child does, just so that you and your little one can seem “normal.”
And I know the frustration that can overshadow your life as you battle to devote every waking minute to your child.
But here is what I do know!
I know your child is au-mazing.
I know you can celebrate your little one’s unique quirks and enjoy every minute you spend together.
And I know that you can STILL pursue your dreams and take care of you and your au-mazing child, ALL without feeling selfish.
