How Do You Explain Autism to Your Son?

Are you ready for “The Talk?”

Today’s Patch column recounts recent events that have me preparing to discuss autism with my son. Click here to read.


  1. My son has read about Autism and knows he is in the spectrum. We talked to him about it several years ago. He seemed to not care one way or the other. We emphasized that whatever his deficits...we will constantly work on them while concentrating on his strengths.

    By the way...I really haven't had the other talk yet. We will be getting him books on the subject soon. He sees the whole process as a genetic one right now. He has asked how the genes meet...we just said that we will get him some books on it later...I know...cowardly :)

  2. Ha, I'm surprised that you hadn't prepared well ahead of time for that other talk. :)

    I'll be curious to see how your son changes over the next few years as his hormones kick up.
