Stresses of Autism

In a New York Times column here a mother describes a small window of time when her autistic son was eleven, her daughter was eight, and her marriage was failing.

A beautiful, moving piece.  Thank you.

There is a current blog at in which a mother with a low-functioning daughter with autism describes her day-to-day experiences.  It is also very moving, as well as giving the reader a real bread-and butter look af what it means to care for such a child.   The mother's insights are also, often, fresh and unexpected.  See especially her comments on the one child in fifty survey results.
