Autism Lives Here

Autism Lives Here: A Sunday ritual.

Pictures that give a glimpse into our life with autism.  Pictures that may show how distinctly different our lives are from yours because of autism.  Or pictures that may show how similar our lives are regardless of autism.

Today’s picture:


I love watching Brian build with his tracks.  He rarely just builds a track on the floor.  Instead, he builds them from structures so the tracks descend and climb around all kinds of perilous situations.  Last week my boys had three days of canceled school due to the widespread power outages here in Midcoast Maine.  That left Brian a lot of time to build a track over his stuffed animals on his bed to the ball pit.
