The Story of 'Not Quite' when You're Parenting a Child on the Autism Spectrum
I’ve been parenting a child with autism for almost 11 years now. For every one of those 11 years, I could have told you there was something different about this child, but it took almost six to find someone to put a finger on just what it was. The thing about parenting a child with autism is it is a never-ending story of not quite.
In the beginning it was, "Well your son has some delays, but I think he's just not quite behind enough for it to be anything serious..." When he was 4 a doctor told us his lack of engagement and anxiety was probably depression and he should play outside more.
