Our son Matthew (born in March 2005) was diagnosed with "moderate" Autism at 2.5 years old.
This is a diary of his road to healing & recovery. Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ

Happy Mother's Day!
John and Matthew took me to a special lunch at the Army-Navy Country Club in Arlington. It was a nice buffet and Matthew was on his best behavior and even wore a tie! Hope all the mommies had a wonderful day!
"Autism is a neurological disorder that often interferes with a person's ability to communicate with and relate to others. Signs of autism almost always develop before a child is 3 years old. Typically, parents first become concerned when they notice that their toddler does not begin to talk or does not respond and interact like other children. Autism also affects how a child perceives and processes sensory information. The severity of autism varies. Some individuals need assistance in almost all aspects of their daily lives, while others are able to function at a very high level and can even attend school in a regular classroom. While this is a lifelong condition, early diagnosis and treatment can make a major difference."
