Samuel is almost 10 years old (furthest right in the photo). He has 2 brothers and a sister who are 11, 6, and 3. I am so glad that they have each other. Oldest brother is a go-kart racer and it is my hope that the entire family can take part in this hobby in the coming years. We have a built in pit crew in our family! Samuel loves playing on the computer and watching You Tube videos. His current favorites are videos about Playstation and the history of video games.



Fletcher is 3 and a half and was diagnosed with autism 5 months ago. He can say about 50 words that we can understand but his favourites are ' wassup?' 'it's ok' and 'so so sorry'. He loves to play outside on the trampoline and in the cubby, with trains, cars and balls. He loves to play Wii with his Dad and big brother Lachlan, while baby sister Mackenzie and Mum clap and cheer.



"Secondo just turned three and was diagnosed with autism several months ago. He loves school buses, fire engines, Nutella and bananas, and has the most contagious giggle in the world."

Ethan and Javi

Ethan 3, diagnosed with PDD-NOS, and older brother Javi, 8, diagnosed with Autism. Ethan is quiet, but very caring and sensitive friend. He's always there to lend a helping hand. He enjoys cooking and is usually the first to line up and help in the kitchen. He loves to snuggle with his little sister, Kaylee 16 months. Javi, loves to talk! He was a late talker, starting out around age four, but is still trying to make up for lost time. His favorite past times are playing video games, drawing and reading. He loves to craft things with his hands and he LOVES to eat. Stark contrast from his younger days, when we swore he got most of his nutrition from juice! Both boys attend public school, Ethan in an integrated ASD preschool and Javi, was promoted from ASD classes to Non Severely Handicapped, Special Day classes.

The Skates Family 7



Joy is a four-year-old bundle of affectionate energy, who runs like the wind and lights the room with her smiles. Though she's not saying more than a word or two these days, she loves peek and chase games and hugs and kissies. Autism and epilepsy are part of the package, but they don't keep anyone in our family from immensely enjoying life, least of all Joy herself!

Cuddlebug loves to design and build things, and Bearhug loves to play and design games.

Liam will be three on the 16th of October and will be starting public school! Every time I turn around he is not only learning something new but teaching something new to those around him. He loves kisses, coloring, wrestling with his little sister, and singing songs. Autism? Is something I'm thankful for. It's made him who he is and he? Is perfect.
