Living with Autism

This is Harley our beautiful little boy, he is 5 years old and is an absolute joy to us, at the age of three we were told that Harley fell into the Autism Spectrum and this page is dedicated to the day to day life we now lead with Harley and how we as a family adjust to ensure life is as normal as any other family. Harley brings us so much happiness and I have learnt to adapt to the way he is thinking and feeling.  I want to share our story with you and talk about our journey and experiences. I am by no means an expert in Autism and look forward to reading your comments sharing your experiences, milestones and obstacles. Harley has a younger brother called Mason, he is 18 months old and has been a godsend as all children are.  Throughout this blog you will see how Mason has had a great impact on Harley social skills. Harley has an older sister called Lexus, she is 19 and is like a second mum to him.  She totally gets Harley. All Autistic children are different so some of the methods or techniques we have used with Harley may not work with your child.  I do however want to share our experiences and spread Autism awareness.
