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

Let me start off, by saying thank you to all past and present service men and women on this Remembrance Day.  Without your ongoing courage, none of us would have the freedom to rant about things on our blogs.

This Remembrance day has been somewhat different for us, when compared to ones previous.  This year was the first time that Jacob showed interest in the meaning of Remembrance Day.  And he was excited to learn that both of his great grandfathers served our country in WW2.  Mine as a field engineer, and his mothers in the Navy.  Both of whom came home when the war ended.

Naturally, we were both pleased at Jacob's desire to learn about not only his family's history, but his country's history as well.  But of course, we also knew that today would mean an extra long assembly, which we also know, can cause Jacob to lash out and eventually have a meltdown.

And of course, he did.

Jacob was very upset at having to spend the majority of his morning in an assembly, regardless of the reason or topic.  Naturally we tried to lessen his level of anxiety during lunch.  We explained the importance of today, plus the meaning of the poppy and a few other points of interest.  But nothing seemed to work.

Even as we went back to school from lunch. he was still upset, and struggling to let go of the hostility that he had from the morning.  But on a positive note, we ordered a set of Goosebumps books from Schoolastic, and they arrived in school today.  We had his EA and SERT hide them from him in order to maintain the surprise.

Now we have 1 gift for Jacob put away for Christmas, which is only (math in head) 42 days away?

But for now, we're still enjoying the day as it was meant to be enjoyed.  With family and friends while we give thanks to everyone in the military.


  1. I hope Jacob learns to cope with assembly better. I always loved them when I was a kid because we got out of class! :)

  2. Irrespective of receiving daily oral or future injectable depot therapies, these require health care visits for medication and monitoring of safety and response. If patients are treated early enough, before a lot of immune system damage has occurred, life expectancy is close to normal, as long as they remain on successful treatment. However, when patients stop therapy, virus rebounds to high levels in most patients, sometimes associated with severe illness because i have gone through this and even an increased risk of death. The aim of “cure”is ongoing but i still do believe my government made millions of ARV drugs instead of finding a cure. for ongoing therapy and monitoring. ARV alone cannot cure HIV as among the cells that are infected are very long-living CD4 memory cells and possibly other cells that act as long-term reservoirs. HIV can hide in these cells without being detected by the body’s immune system. Therefore even when ART completely blocks subsequent rounds of infection of cells, reservoirs that have been infected before therapy initiation persist and from these reservoirs HIV rebounds if therapy is stopped. “Cure” could either mean an eradication cure, which means to completely rid the body of reservoir virus or a functional HIV cure, where HIV may remain in reservoir cells but rebound to high levels is prevented after therapy interruption.Dr Itua Herbal Medicine makes me believes there is a hope for people suffering from,Parkinson's disease,Schizophrenia,Lung Cancer,Breast Cancer,Colo-Rectal Cancer,Blood Cancer,Prostate Cancer,siva.Fatal Familial Insomnia Factor V Leiden Mutation ,Epilepsy Dupuytren's disease,Desmoplastic small-round-cell tumor Diabetes ,Coeliac disease,Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease,Cerebral Amyloid Angiopathy, Ataxia,Arthritis,Amyotrophic Lateral Scoliosis,Fibromyalgia,Fluoroquinolone Toxicity
