Autism Lives Here

Autism Lives Here: A Sunday ritual.

Pictures that give a glimpse into our life with autism.  Pictures that may show how distinctly different our lives are from yours because of autism.  Or pictures that may show how similar our lives are regardless of autism.

People with autism often have interests that can border on the obsessive line (or just full throttle blow that line out of the water).  Brian’s are trains and zoo animals.  However, finding him putting the two together (in a line) in his bedroom was a hallmark moment.  Generally for him, they are two separate loves and they don’t combine.  It’s a proud moment for an autism parent when you see your child think outside of their box all on their own.
