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.

Justin has started teaching himself to talk. He's putting the sounds of letters together, saying them over and over. As a mother, I cannot begin to express how happy I am !

Remove the Barriers

About a week ago, we opened up one of the gates leading up the hallway. He was just hopping it all the time anyway. So I Justin proofed, and he absolutely loves it !

He is so happy sitting in the family room with his brothers and sisters.

He behaves too. He doesn't touch stuff he's not supposed to.

The most amazing thing is after I did that, Justin kept giving me hugs.

He also started teaching himself to talk with his Ipad.

It's almost like a barrier has been removed mentally, and it has sparked something.
