Please take four minutes of your day to watch this touching video featuring a conversation between a 12-year old boy with Asperger's and his mother.
They sit down together while the boy, Joshua, asks his mother, Sarah, some very deep and personal questions about his past, his syndrome, as well as their life together as a family.
Through my life as a teacher and therapist, I picture how children will turn out as they grow up. I also know that it is amazing to look back on the past and see how much progress a child has made!
I can only imagine that hearing the news of your child's Autism diagnosis can be terrifying at first, but as Sarah says, it eventually teaches you how to think "outside of the box" while you get to sit back and watch your child exceed your every expectation with each passing milestone!
