    Glad to be here

    Hello, everyone!

    It's great to be accepted to the forum. My interest in coming here is that I have a son with Autism, PDD (Pervasive Developmental Disorder). I saw the Autism category was somewhat a recent addition to the forum. So I predict I'll be somewhat active in that area. As a parent of a child with Autism, hopefully I have some of my own perspective to share, my own research (as a non-professional), as well as learn myself as I'm always in constant research. Probably will be for the rest of my days.

    But that's what life requires, doesn't it? Always learning.

    I also send a salute to Dr. David, whom I've gotten to know online. He's "all aces", as they used to say in the old days, reminded by Conan O'Brien recently on his show who used that phrase about something. I've been somewhat of a fan of Dr. David's work, as I love psychology.

    As I'm meeting you all probably for the first time, I'm very glad to meet you. I may tend to try to be humorous sometimes (in good taste), but my reason for being here is no joke. My son, whom I love with all of my being, is very precious to me. And it's my hope to learn and to share.

    On a side note, my wife is also Deaf. Wouldn't you like to be a fly on the wall in our home from time to time. I must admit, if I were to distance myself from myself for a minute, it is quite fascinating. If that makes any sense.

    Nice meeting you all.

    - JT

    Hello JT and welcome to Psychlinks. Are you involved in any support organizations for people who deal with Autism?

    Your contribution to the Autism section will certainly be a valuable resource to the Forum.

    Hi GTBH! I am new here too (relatively). This is an incredibly supportive forum for everyone.

    I have a nephew who is autistic and another nephew who is ADHD and profoundly deaf (he got a cochlear implant at 2). My son was diagnosed "borderline autistic" years ago and was in special education in school through the 7th grade. He is so much better, but it was a real struggle, especially with his self destructive behaviors. I feel very much for you and hope that you can gain some support from everyone, just like I am finding here.
