“Yes, recovery is possible! But the road to recovery is long and hard and parents can’t give up too soon. My son is now an aerospace engineer. But helping him was the hardest thing I’ve even done. I once was where you are now. I never realised recovery was even possible. When Ryan was in middle school, my dream was that one day he could hold a job at McDonalds and live independently. But I didn’t believe that might happen back then. Who knew he would accomplish all he has? Only another parent can understand how much we love our kids in spite of how difficult living with autism can be. I know this is all very overwhelming, but I will be here to help you any way I can”
