    I just read a book about how diet can heal autism and other illnesses. Let me know if you’re interested. I’m sure you have already heard about it by researching. Also, when I was a librarian my favorite customer was the most brilliant young (15) girl with aspergers. She was a reading fool!

    Darcel, this post is so wonderfully written. Klaw’s issues are different, but I do understand knowing something is different about your child & then getting confirmation through a diagnosis. You have instinctually been doing everything right for Nakiah, which is no surprise to anyone who knows you. <3

    Your post was very encouraging and I love the way you see your bright girl. The Out of Sync Child was the first book I read when looking for answers for my son before finding out his diagnosis. May you be blessed with love, support, and understanding throughout this journey.

    Thank you for this post. It is encouraging and I love that you see it as just a part of your child — not a definition of her.

      I wouldn’t want someone only seeing the things that I’m not or my quirks. Thanks for reading and commenting.

      Nellie, thanks for coming by. I am lucky to have her. She’s teaching me so much about life and I love being her mom.

    Hi Darcel, I appreciate your intentions in simply being present with your daughter taking this one day at a time. A neat perspective on the autism/asperger’s spectrum is the book Awesomism by Suzy Miller. I have really found her insights helpful. Possibly you will also… here’s a link to her work: http://www.suzymiller.com/ Take gentle care.

    Such an inspiring post! My 6yo son (my first born!) was diagnosed last week with aspergers and traits of dyslexia (though he has to be 8 before we formally test). His list looks a lot like your daughter’s! Except he paces as a stim as well. My instinct that something was going on was right…that’s how a mother’s instinct is!
