Motherhood is the most rewarding and sometimes even the most thankless role a woman can play in her lifetime. Being blessed with a child who rocks the spectrum, the bond of unconditional love can be intense with the significant social, communication and behavioral challenges we overcome as a family. There’s a fundamental understanding required to acknowledge these challenges, to foster and support these relationships.
With that being said I listed a few organizations that has helped me along the way. I hope it is beneficial to you!
