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.
"It seems that for success in science and art, a dash of autism is essential." Dr Hans Asperger 1906-1980

SLEEPING IN THE SUMMER
I often wonder if I'll turn out like my dad and start getting up at 4AM every day for no good reason. When I was young, all I did was sleep and sleeping until noon was very common, especially during the summer break. Maybe it's the Asperger's that prevents Jacob from sleeping. I've read many things online and on people's blogs that kids like ours just don't sleep that much. So tonight I'm going to take Jacob swimming for a couple hours and then hopefully we'll both sleep good. Then maybe we can all get on a more appropriate schedule.
