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

We just returned from trick or treating, and Jacob got so much candy that even I had trouble carrying his pillow case.  The good thing for us is that Jacob only eats the chocolate bars and chips, which means that there's lots of sugary junk for us.

But to be honest, we almost didn't go out at all this year, because Jacob doesn't like walking in the rain at all, even if there's tons of free candy to be had. He did eventually come around and put on his zombie costume.  We then all together, ventured out into the elements to go trick or treating.

After about an hour or so Jacob had enough and we quickly went home before it began to rain too heavy.  But after an hour, we were all soaked to the bone.  So after getting him changed, Jacob went into the kitchen for a drink, but only 2 goodies.  Not because we limited his intake, but because that's all he wanted.

So as Shannie finishes handing out our last candies, I'd like to take the time to wish everyone a safe and happy Halloween.
