Welcome Aboard:-)
You'll be happy to know many of your fellow crew members have been aboard for years and seen some of the most likely storms you'll see as this boat plies the rough waters of ASD.

CNN recently reported on a University of North Carolina study where researchers found that toddlers with autism had a portion of their brains, (the Amygdala) that was on average thirteen percent larger than the neurotypical controls.

In October 2005 we were blessed with our youngest bundle of JOY Jezeriah! At just 4 weeks old Jezeriah arrived at our home. The sweetest fair haired infant I had ever layed eye on!

So our family dedicated to advancing and believing in all differences, received him with an open and believing heart! In the first few weeks Jezeriah lifted his head and soon began to bear weight on his arms to push himself up.
