Treating Autism – How do you know what works?

Posted by on February 3, 2011 in Autism, Parenting, Showcase |

One of the most common questions I get from friends and family members is “How is Stone doing? Is he still making progress?” And fortunately, I’m able to provide the same answer most of the time. “He’s doing great, making slow and steady progress.

So Friday (today) is the 5th birthday of Stone and Ty – our not-so-little (anymore) infamous Twin Tornadoes. At nearly 5 am on Saturday, November 19, 2005 they each entered our world and of course, life hasn’t been the same since. Every parent knows that parenthood itself is an adventure one is never truly prepared […]

Posted by on October 22, 2010 in Autism, Parenting |

It’s been a few months since my last update on Stone so I thought it would be a good time to provide a synopsis of his progress. And the good news is we continue to see progress with him. In my last update, I talked about how Stone and Ty were both enrolled in a […]
