    • Yes this was a wonderful post written by a close friend of mine. Equine therapy helped me a lot as a child with not only socializing, but my coordination and confidence within myself. Horses have a unique way of helping us feel comfort. They are patient and do not demand the same social complexities that humans do. Horses proved to be the steady companions I needed to develop at my own pace.

    • My mom and I are coming out with a book this spring that we have co-authored. It is written from both her perspective as a parent and mine as an autistic child (now adult). It follows our journey and personal stories while also documenting our struggles and successes. Our two stories come together to show how we worked as a team to support my strengths while accommodating my weaknesses. We hope that this book will help others and give them confidence in finding their strengths. It will be available on Amazon.

      For more information about the upcoming release, you can follow my Facebook page which is where most major announcements will be made.

    • That is fabulous news! I’m sure your followers will find the book both helpful and meaningful.

      Thank you Mikhaela and Mary Lynn for sharing insights and resources for transitioning adults and their families.

      And thank you as always to @Chris @Vilen @yaypie and @Victoria for providing an amazing platform for fascinating conversations!

    • Wow, what an inspiring conversation. As a parent I was asking myself throughout whether I would have been as determined to understand my child and try the different things you both tried. It's amazing how much you learned and what a bond you have now. 👏

      It also made me wonder if our children had a little bit of autism that I overlooked or didn't take the time to fully understand. I can't wait for the book to come out.
