| Dear Neena,
my heart goes out to you . my nephew Chris was a beautiful healthy baby boy and and when he as two everything changed. he lost his ability to speak ,cried threw tantrums after countless doctor visits ., They finally reached a diagnosis . Chris had a form of autism called Asbergers. the struggles we endured to help him
were emotionally draining. because of Chris I developed a keen interest in working with Autistic Children, and have read up extensively on the subject.
I am a regular educator who has recently decided to persue a second degree
in special education.I kno it is hard sometimes to see progress in this special learner but the key is persistence and early intervention as soon as the diagnosis
is made. I am happy to say that our Chris is doing very well in school and in life
also .The use of the ABA mehtod has been found to be very successful with this kind of child. Lastly, your poem is touching and heartfelt thankyou so much for sharing it with me.Remember also that God never gives us more than we can handle and he knew exately wwhat kind of mom your child needed when he chose you!become an advocate for your child and his condition. We must become their voice!!
Sincerely Rainbow Writer
Ps there is so much this Chrystal Child can teach you look for the lessons!
