Hi Lisa. I'm new to the site, but not new to autism. My son was diagnosed about 15 years ago. (he's 18 now) He is a grat kid, he's high functioning and will graduate this spring, he got voted Friendliest out of his senior class. It's not always easy, but it is so worth it. Looking forward to getting to know you.
