My son Alex is 5 now he was diagnosed as having non-verbal autism at the age of 3. Since then we have put so much into helping him and he has come so far in terms of his talking/understanding and just as a person. He has come out of his shell so much and makes us laugh everyday.
Alex's special intrest is animals, he loves cuddling up with his puppy's or kitty's.
Pictured here is Alex with 1 of our 4 dogs (Jep).
Animal therapy has been proven to help children with disabilities, not just autism. I think it's a great thing for children and people alike, animals always put a smile on my face.
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is such a complex thing.
I don't try to pretend like I know everything there is to know about it, I just try to be accepting and understanding to all that it entails.
I love every aspect of Alex, autism and all!
