“According…” Concept

“According to Dude” is a blog about the things my brother says and does that we find humorous. Some of stories I will share are current, while some are things that happened years ago that I still remember and laugh about today.

It occurred to me one day that a lot of my friends, family friends, and extended family really enjoy hearing Dude stories.. So I thought, why not write it all down in one place?!

I think it is important to look at the positive moments in a family with a child on the spectrum because there is so much press out there about how autism is a horrible, horrifying disorder. Yes, having a child with a developmental disability is tough. Yes, that child is going to have times of struggle throughout his or her life. Yes, a parent will probably have to alter the dreams they have for their child.

But at some point, you have to let go of the idea of the child or sibling you planned for and embrace the one you have. Chances are, he or she is a pretty cool kid in their own special way.
