For an upcoming story, we want to hear from moms of children (ages 10 and younger) with an autism-spectrum disorder: When did you first suspect that your child may have had autism? Was it a surprise in the doctor’s office? Did you have a sense early on? Tell us about how you “knew.” We would also like to hear about a recent success or breakthrough that you’ve had—whether it’s a big milestone reached or a small school victory. Brag to us! You can write us at Please include your name, your child’s name and age, your city, state, and, of course, a recent photo! Submissions may appear in full or edited on Thank you!
