At those meetings I am learning how to cope with my sons and daughter's autism and mental illness, in ways that are quality of life enhancing for all concerned. My children with autism are now ages 15, 17 and 19 years old. Practicing this program has improved the lives of my entire family.
The Al-Anon Literature is very applicable, if you just substitute the word "Autism, Aspergers,ADHD or Mental Illness" for Alcohol or Alcoholic. This substitution opens up a treasure trove of valuable coping strategies regarding the behaviors of another person that are extremely challenging.
I invite you to join me on this journey! I'm learning how to enjoy life and live each day to the fullest!
With much love,
