Jennifer's story


I have a son with autism and he is 4 and 1/2 years old.

He loves building with lego blocks, Bakugan Balls, Transformers & All super heros.

He is really good at any building things, such as robots and spaceships with lego.

He struggles with speech & general day to day skills that we take for granted.

Sometimes I, as a parent, find it hard when we are out in a public place and he is having a meltdown and the looks we get from passers by, or people's comments and saying he is just being a naughty boy. Or family & friends not understanding the full extent of autism.

But then I think about the special moments, like when he is laying beside me and I am pretending to be asleep and he will rub my arm with so much affection, or out of the blue he will say "I love you"
