I have 3 children and a step son. i'm married. I work a full time job. My youngest son's name is Jackson and he was diagnosed autistic when he was 2 1/2. it has been very difficult for us.we have no clue what we are doing and we are just in survival mode at this point. my son does not communicate his needs with us, he uses gestures to try and tell us what he wants.he gets very frustrated he cant talk. although he does babble all the time and he will repeat just about anything we ask him to say. I am just hoping to meet others who are going through similar things and hear their story because you do feel very isolated with a child who has autism. we rarely go anywhere because of his meltdowns. i hope my story helps others as well.
