    Oh Carrie, we have a sweet grandson who sounds a lot like Jack when Jack was a toddler. Our boy is turning 10 this month. He is essentially non verbal but makes noises all the time. Like you, the worry creeps in and I am just his nana. Thank you for making others aware of autism.

    Once again, Carrie, knocking it out of the park with the reality on both sides of the autism coin. You speak for us all.

    Thank you again, Carrie. After almost 36 years, the grief, and fear of personal inadequacies are still out front.

    Just finished listening to a very interesting English researcher talking about autism which piqued my interest. It’s called “The Pattern Seekers” by Simon Baron-Cohen. He was talking about how humans developed and how autism, or the ability to see patterns, was a part of human evolution. I’ve thought for a long time that there must be a reason for autism as there is spectrum and for the genes to have survived, they must have had an evolutionary advantage for humans. Anyway, I thought I would share it with you. I’m going to get one for myself because I’m definitely on the spectrum as well:)
