Luke is my 20 year old son with Autism. Here are some various photos of him that I wanted to share with you so you get an idea who I am talking about when I do write about him. On my blog I am setting up this page to share my various thoughts on his neurodevelopmental disease along with his mental health issues. When appropriate I will share insights from a perspective of being his mom, his advocate, and his Registered Nurse. And yes, Luke does call me his nurse. It is my hope in these writings it will assist you in understanding the strange world we live in with Luke. It is also my hope these posts will engage you as the reader to become more in tune with the disabled community around you:
