    Hello. I'm not an artist by any means, just a fan of this forum and many of the artists on it, but I have autism (Asperger's Syndrome) and I'd like to say there is most definitely hope out there for your son. Good luck.

    I am also one of those diagnosed with Autism (albeit Aspergers syndrome), and while I cannot rightly speak of how parenting one with my diagnosis - I can give you a few words of encouragement.

    1. Things have changed - a lot
    When my parents first tried to have me diagnosed some 16 years ago (I was about 6 then, I am 22 now), some psychologist still held on to the belief that my condition was caused by a "cold mother" (which is quite funny because in the end it was her who went through the most of the system for me). Your son was diagnosed when he was 2, in a world that knows more about autism, and has long since accepted it as a category in its own right.

    2. You learn as you live
    I have improved a lot in intervening years. Both my motor and my social skills have become better, and I have learned to accept, and to live with, the fact that I will never live the same kind of life that most other people will - I have found happiness in the things that I can, and the life I can live.

    I am currently studying Computer Science, and not doing a too shabby job at it - taking life one day at a time.

    that's really beautiful
    I can relate since my nephew has Autism. He's a beautiful kid, but he has a hard time dealing with a lot of things, so this illustration really does capture all of that.

    I honestly don’t know what to say . I thought about it many times trying to find words. Whatever I come up with won’t be enogh.
    I can’t personally relate to the situation, however I can imagine the situation. and even this is not close to the real thing.
    My wife works with kids that acquire brain injuries, so this is the closest thing I can get to such a situation.
    My heart goes to you and your family

    My deepest regret for your family, and more so for your son! I will repost this on myspace as well. As we all have different circles of friends, hopefully A few more names will pop up and help you out!
