Autism Awareness Month - April 7
Throughout April we will be sharing a different story each day to help raise Autism Awareness and highlight how peoples' lives have been touched by Autism and Autism Queensland in different ways.
My son Clay is 9.
At 2 he could not eat solids.
At 3 he could not say Mummy.
At 4 he was not toilet trained.
At 5 he said a seven word sentence.
At 6 he rode a bike without training wheels on the 1st go.
At 7 he could direct us to places he had only been to once and sometimes years earlier.
At 8 he developed a terror for storms.
At 9 he can draw the map of Australia from memory.
Clay is autistic & amazing.
(Mother of Clay, age 9)
