Hi! My name is Joanna and I'd like to reach out to those of you who might be feeling down, or are new to the diagnosis, or would just like to hear a success story. My son is considered recovered from autism. ... Granted, there are varying opinions on whether that is possible, we feel it is! I started writing a blog before my son was 2. He was non verbal and non-communicative, and tantrummed almost all day. He had know idea who were were. I was just looking for an outlet to vent. Currently, he is fully functional, conversational, social, and in kindergarten with no evidence of a former diagnosis. No one knows! He a " model student " and is at the top of his young class. If you would like to read more about our story, please do! I love to hear from other parents so if you have any questions, please email! There is hope although I do know how hard this journey can be!
