Thank you for joining me! We became a spectrum family started when our oldest daughter was just 18 months old. She wasn’t talking and her behavior wasn’t typical, although our pediatrician repeatedly told me she’d “grow out of it.” Nine years later, and I’d say we’ve grown into it, as we learn to navigate her world on the spectrum.
What approach will this blog take? Some posts will be fun. Some serious. Some will detail approaches, interventions, successes and failures. Some will be about our daily moments of success, or the lack thereof. Some will bring hope, and others will express heartbreak – a reflection of the roller coaster ride we’re on.
I hope to connect parents who have similar experiences – you are not alone.
Welcome to our special needs life, I’m glad you’re here.
