Our son was diagnosed with Autism at the age of 2 years and 3 months. A month later he was on intensive one-on-one home-based therapy. By five, he was in a regular mainstream school, totally indistinguishable from his peers. This document outlines the information on Autism we have acquired over the years and the resources I used to aid our son's recovery.
