Autism Concerns

In 2007 my son, Samuel, was diagnosed with autism. Although he is fairly highly functioning and he has been mainstreamed in public schools, his condition has changed our family, permanently.

Autism, and both the challenges and blessings it has brought to me amd my family, has influenced my spiritual walk, my teaching, and my writing.
