A family deals with autism | Letters

  • Jul 1, 2014 at 4:04PM

I woke up this morning with a very heavy heart. Life with our kind of autism is absolutely mentally, physically and spiritually exhausting. Life with our kind of autism isn’t featured in the media because it’s not uplifting or involving early detection (which are both so important). What is our kind of autism? It involves aggressive behaviors that often come out of nowhere. Something misfires in my son Trevor’s brain and he goes into a rage. He doesn’t want to. This rage involves attacks on others but also on himself and ends with hysterical crying. These are not premeditated. Autism as a whole generally robs the person of social skills and awareness.
