I've been working with folks on the autism spectrum for over 26 years. My daughter was diagnosed with PDD-NOS when she was 11 and although I have never been “officially” diagnosed, my clients and friends who know me well say Asperger's is the reason I “get it”. I have to admit it is the logical assumption. People often refer to me as “The Autism Translator”.

No one learns well or communicates effectively in a state of fight or flight. Treat anxiety and sensory issues first.
People with high-functioning autism have brains like custom computers. Download the code for a Mac or PC and you are bound to have glitches at best, and crashes at worst. But find the right code to connect with us and you might be amazed at our capability.
Instead of focusing on our differences as “problems” that need to be fixed, ask yourself how these unique characteristics are currently working for us or how they can be harnessed and utilized as strengths.
Connection comes first. Adaptation to social rules come as a result of this healthy connection.
Teens & adults on the autism spectrum can live safe, healthy, happy lives.

It's my gift to you and your information will never be shared
If you care about someone on the spectrum but are worried about how they are going to make it in life, then you have come to the right place. Take it from someone who has been there. I'm the mother of a grown child on the spectrum, an autism consultant and people say I am an undiagnosed aspie. Yes, I live and breathe autism and one thing I know for certain is that the right understanding and support from you can make the world of difference for your son or daughter.
It troubles me deeply to see other people on the autism spectrum shutting down or not living up to their full potential so it is my mission to help you create a meaningful connection and the right environment for your son or daughter to flourish.
The steps you take today can help them live a safe, healthy, happy and productive life now and long after you are gone. But this requires examining many of your preconceived notions about autism and ignoring most expert advice about how to “fix” it. Instead, I am going to ask you to pay attention to and learn to read the hidden messages your child has been sending you through their behavior every time they flip a light switch, listen to that song 379 times or get lost in their favorite video game for 9 hours straight without eating or taking a bathroom break. When you understand your son or daughter's motivations, how they feel and what they really long for & need you will be able to create a profound connection and foster their independence.
It isn't rocket science but it does involve following a step-by-step process to address the persistent physical pain, anxiety and communication challenges they face so their true potential can shine through and you can sleep peacefully!
