I have three children on the Autism Spectrum: Oldest – Atypical High-Functioning, Middle – Moderate Functioning, and the Youngest – High-Functioning Asperger’s. Among the three of them they also sport a dozen or so other diagnoses. They are amazing, brilliant, snarky, creative, tornados.
A friend just shared with me this brilliant article on VeryWell.com from March 1, 2018 that breaks down Myth vs. Fact of High-Functioning Autism. If you would like to understand what our family struggles through each and every day I recommend you check it out.
