Joey: Raising A Child With AutismThe Autism Site
The day Joey was born Jackie and her husband were very ecstatic. A typical happy baby who liked to engage and loved to cuddle, Joey his most of his milestones within the expected range but was always just a little bit late. Jackie never thought anything of it until Joey was 12 months old and still was not speaking. As he became more interested in doing his own thing and more obsessive over toys and objects, Jackie new there was something wrong.
Joey was formally diagnosed on the autism spectrum at the age of 3. Watch and witness how Jackie and her husband raise their son Joey and help him to live as normal of a life with the assistance of therapy. Just because a child is diagnosed with autism does not mean he isn’t as smart as other children. They are smart children but their brains just work differently. Let’s raise awareness for autism!
