Why i decided to start a blog

Autism or Autism spectrum disorders are characterized by difficulties in communication in way of spoken speech, social skills, repetitive behaviours. In today's world, it is one of the fastest-growing epidemics with alarming statistics of 1in 40 children are being diagnosed with autism. 

It is very common in boys than in girls. There is presently no known cause for Autism Most of the children on the Autism Spectrum are nonverbal even though they have average or above-average intellectual abilities.

I know there are hundreds of autism blogs already out there but as they say, if you have met one individual with autism you have met one individual with autism.

   I started to blog is that I want to share the story of my son who got diagnosed with autism eleven years ago and how it changed our family.

 I want to share our journey on the spectrum with our share of successes, failures, and ultimately realizing how blessed we are to raise this incredible boy.

I know I am late to blogging but it is my small attempt to help other parents who have kids on the spectrum or whose children may be diagnosed with autism soon.

  Raising a child on the spectrum can be very stressful. Tiring and isolating all at the same time. knowing that other people are facing the same challenges is very comforting to know you are not alone in this journey.

Our son got diagnosed with Autism eleven years ago at 3 years of age. it was extremely hard in the beginning as we questioned ourselves as to why our son had to get this diagnosis.

 But down the road, we have realized we are indeed blessed to have our son who is very kind, loving, and fun to be with. He has faced innumerable challenges in the last decade. We are so proud of how far he has come.

please join me on this journey.
