This morning I went for a haircut …
In the salon was a neighbour  of mine    Her name is Christine…..I know she has a son  called Tom  his now 14 years autistic. I know him well. Coz when he was a kid  he was riding his lil bike … whole day  around our house… and when u tried to contact him……It was not possible…  Its like ur talking to a wall..
Suddenly Christine  cried ……
It  was a waterfall     She told us …. Tom was now in a special boarding school now…But the guy is not understood by  teachers,,even by psychologists and psychiatrists..
He has no control over his attitude…..   Well he succeed for 5 minutes   Thats all. and in those  5 minutes he is loving and sweet  but he cant control it   ..After that he explodes over a stupid thing…..
Now  the guy is fourteen   he has a weight of 140 pounds.  In weekends his home   ….gets agressive .
Than he has no control of his actions……So  his parents are so afraid his doing himseelf or others harm.
As a parents U want HELP……But when even specialist  cant help…What to do.
I work in the Netherlands    There are special houses for such kids……But painfully   we live in Belgium and such
hospitals  are not in the neighbourhood…..
I wanna explain Autism ..  One Note    TOM is now 14 years old    and things gets worse…..  for how long
before he gets hurt….

Autism is a complex developmental disability that typically appears during the first three years of life and is the result of a neurological disorder that affects the normal functioning of the brain, impacting development in the areas of social interaction and communication skills. Both children and adults with autism typically show difficulties in verbal and non-verbal communication, social interactions, and leisure or play activities. One should keep in mind however, that autism is a spectrum disorder and it affects each individual differently and at varying degrees – this is why early diagnosis is so crucial. By learning the signs, a child can begin benefiting from one of the many specialized intervention programs.

    How sweet of u.  Autism can take toll on many, especially a mom.  It’s hard.  We had a child with autism in church, sweet little thing.  Could never sit still for the sacrament.  But she was only one allow to get up and visit.  We all open our arms to her, and let her mother take that break.  There’s not much a parent can do.  Even holding them gets to be difficult.  But it is their love that keeps them strong.  Tell Christine not to give up and to take a day to vent and cry.  If she wants a pillow fight that you wil be happy to help.  (my neighbor did that with me and i really felt good.)

    Hey Marij….
    well Autism has to be found early and treated quickly right from the onset…. its indeed a terrible diseace… and as much as Alzheimers is a killer, Autism too is a killer as it destroys the child and everyone around the child start living a life of pain and sorrow everyday…. its so hurtful even to read ur blog….
    i hope christine will find some hope from the love of  our god, and may he be there for her family….
    if even the best doctors can’t help the kid recover… then the only hope left is god….
    tc and god bless…
