Beat Autism

Our Story

When our first son was diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome at the age of 7 we were told that he would never form relationships, he wouldn’t have the coordination for sports or be able to play in teams. It was unlikely that he would ever work and that sadly his future was very bleak.

Our second Son was diagnosed with Severe Classic Autism at the age of 5. We were given a leaflet explaining what Autism is and a box of tissues. We were told that there is no cure for Autism.

Our eldest son now holds down a regular job, drives his own car and has a long term girlfriend. Oh, and he plays for his local cricket team too! Our youngest son still has a long way to go, but has changed from a violent, non verbal, frustrated child to a happy, lovable bundle of joy that now speaks in small sentences, and negotiates everything.
