Hi, Cathy -- and everyone! I'm Lily, CL of the Autism Spectrum Disorders board. I look forward to CL'ing this board with you, and getting to know everyone here. My son is now 10, and he was diagnosed with autism when he was 3; it became official a couple of days after he turned four, back in 2004. It's been a crazy ride, but he's doing so much better. He is homeschooled, involved in soccer and we're working on social skills, a constant issue. He also has chronic migraines/anxiety (along with the regular autism-related issues we often see, like ocd, tics/tourette's, adhd, etc.) so you never know what each day will bring!

We'll see you in a few days after the merge! :)
