We live for the betterment of our children. There is no nobler cause regardless of race, class or title.
I am a father of three boys; my youngest Michael, 12, has autism. He is surrounded by family, friends and providers who encourage and support him, none more important than my wife and two older sons. I am a Physician Assistant by trade and work with Developmentally Delayed adults residing in a state facility.
I wear a blue rubber bracelet on my wrist that says, “Engage – Enable – Expand – Express – Embrace” which has become a mantra for me.
I welcome you and invite you on this journey with me as a parent on the Autism Spectrum. I urge you to share you stories and pictures.
I am an advocate for Awareness and Empowerment of those affected by Autism. I am an occasional Guest Blogger on http://autismspeaksnetwork.ning.com/profile/EBrothers and on www.stuartduncan.name, a blog about autism from a father’s perspective.
