"mytriumvirate#lordelvis was so proud of the pizza πŸ• he made at school today. He cut it up to share with everyone. I took one bite and stifled a gag. It was awful! But as you do I smiled and told him it was amazing πŸ˜¬πŸ˜‚πŸ˜›" @mytriumvirate

"His name is Antonio. And he'll be 3 in July. Ever since he was born, he has lit up everyone's life. He can't speak or really understand us yet, its been a long and hard process for him. They think it'll take a couple yeard. His speech therapists want him to go to a special school where they're sure he'll make friends. He is always happy. No matter what. And he loves to jump. He'll be finally attending school in the fall. ☺ were very excited for him." @michelle_lynne713

"Watching him make gains brings us so much joy. A year ago he was a nine year old who had spent most of his life navigating the foster care system. When he moved in with us, we were told there were so many things he would not be capable of doing. Today, he has made so many incredible gains and done so many things that were thought to be impossible, like learning to ride a scooter! We are so thankful for his courage to try new things, especially when it's difficult!" @lodgey228

"My son Jayden is 8 years old and he is the light of my life. He was diagnosed at 3 years old. When I received the confirmation that he had ASD in that moment darkness engulfed me. Jayden was nonverbal, he was still not potty trained, and he did not like to be with anyone other than his father or me. The doctors told us to prepare for Jayden to never speak and the possibility that he would never truly behave as a "normal" child. Such difficult news. I cried for 2 weeks. I just thought my baby. After that I got to work. I believed in my baby. We still have our struggles but we push forward. My baby didn't say mommy until he was almost 4. The most beautiful thing I ever heard. I knew then we were going to be ok. I am proud to say that at 8 Jayden has progressed amazingly. He is high functioning on the spectrum and is a regular 8 year old. They said my baby would never talk and although communication is still an opportunity I find myself asking him to be quiet now. Lol! This year he won the award for best reading and writing in the entire 2nd grade! He is no longer antisocial and will engage with other children. We hit milestones now that has confirmed for me that this journey is hard but you just have to strong and the hard work will pay off. I am so impressed and proud of him everyday. He is my guide on this journey through autism and I am so thankful." @ourjourneythroughautism

"Eric started as non verbal. It wasn't until he was about 6 years old he was able to start communicating and putting sentences together He is 10 yrs old now. He can talk and has developed communication skills. He can write, spell and even does mathematics. He enjoys drawing and putting together story boards and recording videos. But where we are the most proudest is his acknowledgment of God. Me and his Mom started attending church about 2 years ago. We eventually got baptized and started serving our church. When we first started attending Eric would have to sit with us or he could not attend. Our church eventually purchased a new building and they added a "Special Accommodations" class for kids that had special needs. Eric was one of the first to attend. He looks forward to attending every Sunday." @jmanagement @thruhimclothing

"Luke was diagnosed recently with ASD, but we'd suspected there was an underlying condition causing his speech delay when he was about two. He had the habits of lining everything up, counting and reciting the alphabet constantly too. He's been at school nearly a full year and is doing amazingly well, and is loved by his peers and his teachers. He's such a cheeky chap! ❀️" @lisanobles

"This boy... omg i would need so much time to tell you how great he is. They told me he have autism, but he tells us how great the world is if you just look trough his eyes... if I have some me time I love to watch and see what he sees. I am the parent but it's him who teaches us about how great the world is... a beach isn't just water and sand, take time, feel the sand and look how great it looks! 'That's nature mom! This is what they gave us and we have to love it and take care of.' Maxim LOVES the earth! How it's made, how blue the sky is, how green the grass is, how the world sounds without the noise of human." @diericksabrina84

"This week our lives have changed yet again. We are choosing to believe it's for the better and that this is a blessing wrapped in a complex little package. This week we found out that our sweet little man has been formally diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. August is Autistic. This isn't a label we want to define him. He's so much more than 20 or so pages of diagnostic information written based on surveys and observations. He's a beautiful and wonderful blessing and we are so thankful that God chose us to be his parents. I'm not going to sit here and tell you that it's not hard and that we're not sad. It is. We are and that's okay. This is a big life change and it will take time to adjust and make sure we're on the right path. August is very delayed in most ways and has some real sensory needs, but we are working with it and doing everything we can to make sure he excels in his own time and ways. We don't want pity for him or ourselves. Please, don't be sorry for us or for him. We aren't. We love this beautiful little human just the way God intended him to be. He's the happiest child I know and there's no reason to be sorry about that. We appreciate your love and support always β€οΈπŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ’™πŸ’œ" @augusts_fight

"Karter was diagnosed before he was two and a half years old. He has been in speech therapy, occupational therapy and ABA therapy for over 4 years and the successes he has had are immeasurable. He was nonverbal and it wasn't until he was 4, that I heard him say 'mom' for the first time. Now he is saying random words with purpose and speaking 2 and 3 word sentences. He has taught me more in his 5 years than I could have ever imagined. He has made me a better person and more importantly, a better mom. He brings joy to everyone he comes in contact with and has an infectious laugh can can brighten anyone's day! He is my hero and I will always be his biggest advocate and cheerleader! We celebrate all victories, even the small ones. I am always looking forward to the next time we get to have a dance party to celebrate one of those victories! πŸ’™πŸ’™" @melmart84

"This is Nina-Jollie, she is 5 years old and non verbal. She used to not look at anyone when she was 1 and she started to love pose for pictures, after she feels comfortable with the cameras she is fine around other people." @ninajollie

"This is Alex, he's 7 and we love him very much. He's going into 2nd grade, he's been going to classes/school since he was about 3 and he's doing very well! He's a very loving boy. He's audible and I couldn't be more proud." @rosie_1965

"Ben was diagnosed at 2 1/2 but we knew much earlier. He has an older brother with Down syndrome & Autism so we were familiar with ASD characteristics. At 3 he couldn't answer a yes or no question but with lots of early intervention, at 5 years old, he is now very articulate and can read on a second grade level and will be attending REGULAR kindergarten next year!!!! He continues to amaze us every day 😊" @lularoeheidiknudsen
