As a mother, I will never give up on my child. As a mother of a child who has autism, I will never give up hope.
I look into his eyes and I see all the potential that he has to offer to this beautiful world and I just know that one day the world can see what I see.

Follow my blog as I share my life and my experiences as a person who loves someone with autism.

Comparing apples to oranges

Comparing children with autism to one another, is like comparing apples to oranges. Sure apples and oranges are both round, and both equally delicious, but they both have their own unique textures, flavours, and uses.

Every child is different, every case is different. No two children with autism are alike. They say if you meet a child with autism, you’ve met one child with autism. And that’s that.

Because each child is different, and each case is different, you need to realize that what works for one child with autism won’t necessarily work for another child with autism.

The stories we share to you as Bryce’s parents are things that we have experienced, things that have worked for us, and may or may not work for you. And what worked for you may or may not work for us just the same. You are the biggest advocate for your child, so do what works for your situation and don’t let anyone ever make you to do something because it’s worked for them.

  2. @nessy We only have one child, but it's the same thing. One week he has this as a favourite, and the next it's something completely different. Always on our toes. Story of our life. :)
