Being the mother of a child on the Autism Spectrum is not always an easy job. Before my son was diagnosed, life was very difficult. I had a two year old daughter to care for and he cried a lot and nothing we did seemed to soothe him.
We really noticed something wasn’t quite right when our third and youngest child started to make strides in communicating sooner than he was. We spoke with our pediatrician about our concerns and she was able to help us get him enrolled into an early intervention program.
