Not necessarily. For parents with children on the Autism Spectrum, life doesn't go back to being typical because April is over.
As many of you know from reading my posts and my blog site, my 9 year old son has Aspergers Syndrome, part of the Autism Spectrum Disorders.
For the most part, we're at a good place right now. He's on a low dose of an ADHD med. He's on the Gluten/Casein Free Diet. He's got a 504 Plan to level the playing field in school. We've got a handle on the strategies that make day to day stuff go OK. He's happy, has friends this year and is doing well academically in school.
But he's not what some would say recovered. If you took away all the supports, his symptoms increase. And sometimes you don't even need to take away the supports.
