Jeff Donohoo: When a child with autism grows up

Here is one man’s story of what it is like to grow up with an autism spectrum disorder. It is about Jeff Donohoo, who is 36 years old. I can really identify with his story as my son (who is 43) is also diagnosed with the same disorder. In fact, I recognized many of the same traits.

But, I am posting it because it is also a story of hope. The message is, that while adults like Jeff will never be completely independent, they can live full and satisfying lives.  And, since all children grow up, whether they have autism or not, we as a society have to do what we can to help them make the most of the one life they have.
