I just found this out last night and I feel so sad for her and her husband, I can't imagine how they must feel. Luckily their son is getting alot of services which should help alot, but it's not going to change the fact that he will never be normal and won't have much of a future. The parents are both doctors and very will educated, which is what I'm sure they had dreamed about their son being too. The husband is also very into sports and was excited about getting his son involved. It must feel like a part of them has died when they received their sons diagnoses.Answer Question
OK, first,,,,,,, He can have a "normal' life and he has the chance at a great future!!! My son is autistic and I have never thought that he didn't have a future.
Just be there for them. It is a hard thing to hear but there is lots out there for him and them. The best thing YOU can do is not treat them or their son any different. That's the hardest thing, when people feel sorry for you and look at you and your child different.
