My son was diagnosed with autism when he was three. Like a lot of people, my only point of reference at the time came from the movie Rain Man. In the coming years, my child taught me more about autism than Dustin Hoffman ever could!

I created The Autistic Mom to share some of the many things I’ve learned—and unlearned—along the way.
