Living with Autism
I don’t know what’s up with me, but lately I am just SO AWESOME.

Living with a person with autism has demands of its own. Families usually experience high levels of stress and grief. However, life with autism is not an impossible prospect; rather a beautiful but adventurous journey. Knowing the challenges and preparing for this journey will make a huge difference to the person, parents, siblings, relatives and friends.
