About Me

In June of 2014 my family learned that my 4 year old son was autistic. This is a window into our world. What it's like day in, and day out for an autistic child.

Meltdowns

Justin has went a long time without a meltdown, but yesterday he made up for not having a meltdown by having a huge one.

I don't think anything prepares you for an autistic meltdown.

Yesterday, he was extremely focused on one specific thing; a small ball of blue play dough.  He was so excited until, he lost it.

He started crying, screaming and yelling "blue ball" over and over again. Well, we couldn't find it. The crying and yelling went on for about an hour. Until he finally fell asleep.
