Re: I have a 31 yr old son with Autism/Aspergers...hope this info helps

I really appreciate your post. What helped me the most was hearing how your son continued to progress as he aged.
My son is 14 and just keeps getting better every year without any therapies.
However, for a long time there was the feeling in the autism community that you had to hit them with every treatment you could afford (even to the detriment of the rest of the family) while they were young, or else you had lost that "window of opportunity".
I cherish letters like yours!
