Well, here I am, about to start my first blog!

My blog is titled "So, what does that mean?" because these are 5 words that I hear on a daily basis. I am a mother to a 5 year old boy, Nicky, who has Aspergers Syndrome. And, once you mention those 2 words to someone, the response that you get 99% of the time is - "So, what does that mean?" So, from Wikipedia -

'Aspergers Syndrome is an autism spectrum disorder that is characterized by significant difficulties in social interaction, along with restricted and repetitive patterns of behavior and interests. It differs from other autism spectrum disorders by its relative preservation of linguistic and cognitive development. Although not required for diagnosis, physical clumsiness and atypical use of language are frequently reported.'

This blog will be filled with our day to day struggles and achievements, different therapies that can be used, schooling issues and different ideas we can try.

I hope you enjoy my blog, and if you are reading and wish to share any progress or issues you are having, feel free to leave a comment - I would love to hear from you!
