Emmett’s struggle with #Autism is getting worse



I hate to even think this, let alone verbalize it but as time goes on, Emmett’s struggle with all things Autism seems to be getting worse.

Everything sensory related is so much worse than it’s ever been before. His threshold for dealing or coping with these things is almost nonexistent on some days.

This is very frustrating for everyone because it means that so many things are more challenging than ever before.

I should probably clarify that it’s the symptoms of Autism that are worsening. Unless you’re dealing with CDD, Autism itself doesn’t usually get worse. The symptoms, on the other hand, can, especially when a child is under stress or duress.



We are working with Dr. Pattie to help Emmett better navigate his world.

This is a major challenge and it makes life harder for all of us, but it’s especially hard on Emmett himself. He doesn’t enjoy going through this.

My biggest concern is school at this point because we can’t continue to have mornings like we had today.

Take a second and answer the poll

Did you gain guardianship of your child with Autism when they turned 18?
