This book was written compiling two years of blogs that I wrote for the website, ModernMom.com. In my blogs, I share ideas, strategies, suggestions, and experiences based on my own life with my autistic son. Ten years of experience in the autism community has taught me many things, but one stands out--we all share information. Parents, facilitators, administrators, therapists all talk to each other. We are a growing community, but we are strong and determined to help our kids. Because my son is older, I hope this book with help parents of children who may have recently been diagnosed. I had help, so I'm here to pay it forward.
