My name is Tasha and I am an autism mom.   My son was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder in 2008 at age 2.  In 2009, my husband passed suddenly, leaving me and our three kids alone with no family.  I lost all support systems.  Through this blog, I hope to tell our story.  Maybe you can identify with something I say, and then you’ll know you aren’t alone.  I’m no superhero.  Nothing in my education or work experience prepared me for this and the only training I’ve had is what my son and I have learned together.  It all started with the interrupt, something I began doing that produced the result of actually interrupting the Autism in my son.
