I am a mother of five children. My oldest has Aspergers and my 2nd has ADHD. They are now 35 and 33 years old. Twenty years ago I became an advocate for children with ADHD and Autism Spectrum in the school system and began working on my Masters in Psychology so I could help others overcome difficult experiences. I now work mostly with adults on the spectrum. I work with couples and individuals how are trying to understand the disorder and learn skills to improve their lives. People with ASD are very intelligent and have a unique way of seeing the world and if given the right opportunities and circumstances, can be highly successful.
