I HAVE AUTISM! ACCEPT ME…

Thomais has autism. She can now speak – after a massive regression in Dec. 2010.

As time passes, her prowess with language and body expressions is obvious and beyond enjoyable. At the same time, her message is clear, concise and beyond real.

NOTE: I am aware not every family can have their child communicate the way Thomais does. We have been there. We survived the not knowing or understanding. May Thomais’s words help those around you understand what your child/teen/adult could be experiencing.
