My name is Leasa and my son Cody was diagnosed with severe nonverbal autism at the age of 17 months. Cody is now 21. Our journey has been long and hard but the rewards many.
I started a blog one late night where I felt guided to share our story on social media. Sharing has brought many emotions. I have had the pleasure of connecting with so many wonderful families.
We were told Cody would never speak. Cody spoke his first word at nine. We share how much he has progressed and how our family bonds together to give him his best opportunity at the best most independent life.
