This is my son K.C. he is 7 1/2 years old, lives in sunny Arizona, has one German Shepherd puppy and K.C. is Autistic. He is non verbal but knows at least 10 different signs! He is the joy of my life, he is accomplishing so much and even gives hugs. I wouldn't change a thing about K.C., he is perfect in my eyes.
This is Samuel, age 7. He's diagnosed with Autism, ADHD and SPD. He's a hard working first grader in a special ed program and a tiger cub scout. He loves anything cat related, Thomas the Tank and playing video games. He was born on Valentine's day and has a lot of love to give. With the right supports, he can accomplish a lot for a little guy.
My son John was diagnosed at age 2 with "Severe infantile Autism" He was non-verbal till around six. This inspiring photo is of him graduating from high school, which we were told would never happen. He is 24 now...he drives, he works, he gives speeches about Autism.
Or back of the head if you prefer! These positive images speak for themselves.
If you would like to add a photograph please email me at Julielorenzen[at]hotmail.com with a short caption and a link to your blog if you have one.
I hope you will make some new friends.
I would love any art work to add to the side bar.
