Life is not easy. Especially when you are in a family of invisible illnesses and disabilities. It can be serious, funny and downright hard! But we make it. Just like everyone else. We just do it in a different style.

Twitter Blog Post -#Autism

The following is a Twitter conversation that I think needs to be saved. Tweets come and go, but hearing a mother's joy about her child's progress is priceless.

#AUTISM #ASD our ABA therapist said friday that our little guy isnt autistic (?) and that he is moving rapidly 2 verbal (many words already!

@nika7k Possible Asperger's? My son started with several diagnoses. At 16, now, considered Aspie. #AUTISM #ASD

@judielise Yep, thats what we were thinking too #AUTISM #ASD

@judielise he is now acquiring tons of words and using in context - LOVE growth spurts - ABA is the BEST #AUTISM #ASD

@nika7k Glad ABA so successful for u. Wasn't around when I really needed it. I support the program. #AUTISM #ASD

@judielise sorry not avail then... Iam profoundly thankful that MA covers 14 hours a week ABA 100% #AUTISM #ASD

@nika7k U give main reason why I support program! So many children out there, older 1s, parents lost w/o guidance. #AUTISM #ASD

@nika7k I had to make it up/create it as we went along. He taught me what worked, I repeated over and over. #AUTISM #ASD

@judielise excellent! in 2 weeks our guy went from just 3 -4 words to MANY more and driven to LEARN more, that last is key #AUTISM #ASD

I believe all children want to interact w/world. Our job=finding out what key opens door connecting child2world. #AUTISM #ASD

And then accepting child's level of interaction when they have reached full potential. #AUTISM #ASD
