As the year comes to a close it’s time to look back at the previous 12 months and look at all that it brought to me and my life. As is the case with most years, it was full of surprises, challenges, laughter and a few tears. But overall it was a good year and […]

I have written quite a bit about Stone and our adventures with Autism.

In some therapy offices […]

Posted by David on December 25, 2012 in Autism, Parenting, Stone, Twins |

“Hope is a waking dram” ~ Aristotle Tears welled up in my eyes as I sat down to talk to Renee about Stone in early October. “I think he’s regressing,” I told her. We had noticed a decrease in his use of speech as well as new unexplained behavior – spitting – at school and […]

Since I started this blog a few years ago, I’ve had an opportunity to share about many parts of my life – and thank many of the people who have had an impact on it – but up until now, I haven’t given my Dad his proper due. So it’s only appropriate that on Father’s […]

Posted by David on June 14, 2012 in Autism, Parenting |

I wrote earlier this week about some of the challenges that come with being a parent of a child with autism – and promised a lighter post later that focuses more on the positive aspects that come from the experience as well.
