Diagnosis of autism

With my son turning eighteen next year and becoming an adult, I found this article rather intriguing. What’s interesting is not so much that they’re adults with autism but the fact  that went though their childhood not knowing.

The article is entitled “When An Autism Diagnosis Comes In Adulthood” by Katherine Du and Eric McDaniel over at NPR. For me, the disappointment was not having the diagnosis until he was five. Unfortunately, before that he was epileptic (thankfully though, he’s been seizure free for many years now).
