My happy-go-lucky boy Nikko was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder and Global Developmental Delays on October 6, 2008. I've created a blog to document his journey with autism, life with his siblings and everything else in between. It's therapeutic for me as well. Thanks for reading!

Nikko drew circles (rather, ovals) all over a page of a spiral notebook. I was chanting his name and the letters in it, and he started repeating his letters, too. I put the brown marker in his hand and actually let him guide me in drawing two letters: K and O. So we almost spelled his name. I definitely praised him for his written efforts!!
