I just wanted to introduce myself to everyone as I am new to this forum. My husband and I have a 13-year old son who has autism as well as OCD. Our days can be very exhausting at times but, all in all, we feel very blessed to have our son in our lives. Autism is a difficult disability for many to understand because, for some, there are no physical characteristics indicating anything is wrong. Our experience with our son has been that people expect him to perform as others his age do simply because he does not display some of the key characteristics of autism....flapping, spinning, self-injurious behavior, etc...
