Hi there! I am Marina. I am your typical teenage girl… well, except for one thing- I have a brother with Autism. My brother, Jack, has completely turned my life around. At age 2, he was diagnosed PDD-NOS. When Jack was 4 years old, he was diagnosed with Autism. I was only in the 6th grade at this time so I didn’t understand it. I knew nothing more than therapists came in and out of my house on a regular basis. No time for questions. It has been 6 years since his diagnoses, and he has come a long way. Besides Jack’s improvement, I have also expanded my knowledge of Autism. At school, I started a club dedicated to Autism Awareness and support.
I created this blog for those who have an autistic sibling or relative and stand in the same position I did when my brother was diagnosed. I have learned so much from the research I have done and personal experiences that I have grown from. I am here to answer the questions that you may have to the best of my ability. I want to reach out to you. You deserve someone to help you through this and I am here for you.
