Meet Maria and Ryan Box
Having a child on the autism spectrum certainly requires parents to make many adjustments but it is not the end of the world. One such parent from the UK, Maria Box, started writing monthly columns about her four year old autistic son named Ryan. Maria writes how Ryan's fourth birthday party, which took place earlier this month, was not a typical party for a four year old. While little Ryan did not blow out his candles or even eat his birthday cake, the popular "Thomas the Tank Engine" on the surface of his cake certainly brought a priceless wide smile. Maria actually started a support charity for children on the autism spectrum in the UK, the link to which can be found here: http://autismsupportcrawley.btck.co.uk/. Even if you don't live within reach of this specific support group, performing an online search might be able to locate a similar group near your community.
