Are you curious about Asperger’s from an insider’s perpective? My son, Brian (now 22) sat down for an interview and answered questions submitted by other parents and friends. E.g., How did he perceive growing up Aspie? What was most difficult? His greatest triumph? His thoughts are candid, sometimes heart-breaking, and always honest.
I am an Autism parent, an Aspie, and married to an Aspie, Ed, my husband of 24 years. I’m writing to share our story, which is the real-life drama of raising two boys on the autism spectrum. Our story contains tragedy, comedy, lots of action, conflict and adventure. But it’s also the story of the evolution of an autism parent. For as much progress as my sons have made, I may have made more. I’ve become who I am today through their struggles and triumphs. People have told me over the years that I am a hero and role model. I don’t feel that way. My superheroes are Brian and Evan, and maybe my superpower has been in raising them. They are true trailblazers and the wind beneath my wings. View All Posts
