#MentalHealthAwareness: Families with #Autism

Welcome back to the Mental Health Awareness Month Blog Hop. This month we have been focusing on Aspergers Syndrome. Aspergers Syndrome was once a label unto itself but in 2011 the DSM - 5 removed the label and merged the disorder as one of the autism spectrum disorders.

On Monday, we learned that Aspergers and other forms of Autism may be a genetic condition passed down from parent to child. Today I want to share with you views from a parent and siblings who have autistic children in their families. They open up what their lives are like with their loved one who has Autism.
