I was reading the news on my computer when I came across an article that really hit home. It's about an autistic boy who's been living in a hospital for 5 months. The boy has autism and is prone to violent outbursts. The outburst have even resulted in personal injury, which led the family to bring the boy to a hospital. The hospital says that the boy in question is physically fit to leave, but the boys parents are in fear for the safety of their other children.
This brings to light a question that all parents of kids with autism face; what will happen to our child when they grow up? I couldn't imagine Jacob being an adult and having to face the world alone. This story really hit home with me and can be read here.
WELCOME TO JIM'S AUTISM BLOG
Hi everyone and thanks for visiting our blog. My wife and I created this blog to chronicle our experience while raising a son with Asperger's syndrome. Since our son was diagnosed with an ASD at age 5, we've had a lot of questions. Lucky for us we have a great support network in place. And our blog gives us an opportunity to share what we've learned with our readers. We hope you find our blog informative and interesting. Thanks again for visiting.
