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.

One Step Forward, Two Steps Backwards

Anybody that has an autistic child knows exactly what I mean when I say, " One step forward, two steps backwards."

You make strides toward a goal.

Most of the time, I've found it's usually something small with autistic children.

As an example, Justin was doing good with learning how to go on the potty. Than, it's like a switch went off, and we were right back to square one.

Maybe he just doesn't want to bother with it. In his mind he might be happy with going in his diaper, and not having to worry about the hassle of going in the potty.

It could be he doesn't see the purpose in it. It could just seem trivial to him.

Or, he could just be being stubborn.
