A Solo Journey Taken Together

Communities can make a difference

So much has changed since Alex was diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder in the late 1990s –more conversations, more research and more understanding. Over the years, we realized that while Alex might be different in some ways, he certainly wasn’talone –and neither were we. We learned that help can be found with diligence, persistence, and an open heart. We also learned that sharing our experience with other autism families is a great way to learn, vent and laugh. And we hope this page can possibly be a way to share some resources, experiences and common understandings in an often-misunderstood world.
