On The Spectrum: Nicky And His PassionThe Autism Site
Discovery Health takes a sneak peek into 19-year-old Nicky’s life. Nicky has been diagnosed on the autism spectrum but has a special gift and interest in languages and dragons. When his mother was asked if she had the option to take away his autism, she answered that she would not. It is what makes him special and allows him to do so many things that none of her other children are able to do.
Watch as Nicky is excited to show-off the number of dictionaries he has written along with a novel that he has written about dragons. Nicky attends the DLC Warren School where he will attend till he’s 21. Unfortunately after he is done, his family is not sure what direction to take next. But they do know that as long as Nicky’s mother is alive he will live with her and his siblings are more than happy to take Nicky in once she is gone too. Family support is key to living with autism!
