My favorite pic from last summer

 Last summer- Empire, Michigan. Casey showing the world that he is carefree…. If only I had a child’s heart like that.

  1. I just found your website thru’ Amy’s Earnest Parenting. I’ve read a few of your posts. I can sympathise a little with a special needs child. My brother has a strong case of Asperger’s Syndrome which wasn’t diagnosed until he was in high school, so he had a ton of issues all thru’ school. I have a mild case of Asperger’s (unoffically diagnosed), so I know a lot of what he’s going thru’. I can only imagine how much more difficult it would be with full-blown Autism.

    Since Asperger’s is so closely linked with Autism, I’m concerned that my daughter could have either. So far she (at 6 months) seems to be doing just fine, tho’ her verbal skills are a little behind. Do have a recommendation for learning about early signs of Autism?

    Thank you so much!
    God Bless!

  2. PandaBean, I can totally sympathize with you, too. I have hyperlexia (unofficially diagnosed, pretty much self-diagnosed from going through all the diagnoses with my son through the years and seeing a LOT of myself in him). Since I’m getting my Master’s in Education- Curriculum and Instruction- Special Education, I’ve been doing a TON of research. I also went to a conference yesterday and hear Dr. Luke Tsai, who is a VERY well-respected child psychiatrist and is well-versed in autism. I have a boat load of new information that I’d be more than happy to share with you.

    Warm regards,
