In this Ability Life Solutions Favorite Video, this mom and dad duo talk about one of their three boys on the autism spectrum, Allistair and his diagnosis.
We really enjoyed the candid conversational way Allistair’s diagnosis is shared, finding this story to be relatable, realistic, optimistic, and balanced. While they were somewhat caught off-guard by Alistair’s diagnosis, which did not specify an expected level of functioning (as the diagnoses for their other two boys did), they felt this could be a positive for Alistair as there would be no expectations for the level of functioning he could or could not attain as they begin to provide early intervention therapies.
