    Thank you for this beautiful post.
    My spectrum kiddo is 13 and I still hold his hand. I hope I can hold his hand for years to come. The way I understand it is this: The world is so unpredictable and has so many questions for him that it is one small thing he can be sure of, even if he can’t articulate it. The comfort, the guidance, the familiarity ease his nerves and body and mind just enough to be a little more free to be himself in that moment.

    when I was considered an adult, before I had kids, I still didn’t know the difference between autism, aspergers, or even dyslexia! I am embarrassed to admit this. But I didn’t know anyone who could explain this or even to ask. This blog is so necessary and important to educate people.! It should be required reading in so many venues!

    Can you please link some clinical studies showing autism is genetic?
