It's not the disability but the ability!

I am a mother of two amazing kids with autism.  Not long after their diagnosis I made the decision to go back to school and complete a Master’s degree program.  I was blessed to participate in an extraordinary  Master’s degree program in Autism offered by Arizona State University.  My kids were my classroom, the subjects of all of my papers and projects.  I completed the program Suma Cum Laude with a Master’s degree in Special Education with a specialty in Autism; Consultation and Collaboration.  I have eight years of experience in planning and ensuring successful Individual Education Plans (IEPs) and collaborating with teachers, therapists, family and school officials.  I have twelve years of day to day experience in living and working with individuals with autism.  I am here to help and have a lot of fun doing it!

So What is Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)?

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) refers to a group of complex neurodevelopment disorders characterized by repetitive and characteristic patterns of behavior and difficulties with social communication and interaction. The symptoms are present from early childhood and affect daily functioning.
The term “spectrum” refers to the wide range of symptoms, skills, and levels of disability in functioning that can occur in people with ASD. Some children and adults with ASD are fully able to perform all activities of daily living while others require substantial support to perform basic activities. The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5, published in 2013) includes Asperger syndrome, childhood disintegrative disorder, and pervasive developmental disorders not otherwise specified (PDD-NOS) as part of ASD rather than as separate disorders. A diagnosis of ASD includes an assessment of intellectual disability and language impairment.
ASD occurs in every racial and ethnic group, and across all socioeconomic levels. However, boys are significantly more likely to develop ASD than girls. The latest analysis from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 1 in 68 children has ASD.
Autism is NOT a tragedy! 
Individuals with Autism have amazing potential!  Autism does not define who they are or who they can be!
Every individual with autism is unique!
