My name is Kelsey and I’m a mother to a beautiful boy, Brody. Last month, Brody was diagnosed with autism and a sensory processing disorder although we have known for over a year he had autism. We are a family from Maine, currently living in Watertown, NY and enjoying a different but similar area of beautiful scenery and a slight change of the small town pace. Brody currently attends a school for kids with disabilities and is enrolled in several therapies to help him with his special needs. Since learning about Brody’s needs, I’ve realized that there is a lack of awareness and basic knowledge of kids like Brody and have been facing this challenge daily. I am trying to transparent, honest and as open as possible through this journey so I can help those who would like to learn more and follow along and also as support for those who can relate. I hope that this blog somehow makes a difference and can be a great resource and outlet for anyone interested. Now knowing the things I do, I wish I would have chosen a degree in something more related to Brody’s needs rather then marketing and fashion. Since I don’t have the option to have a job in that area and have a hard time finding ways to contribute and make a change, this is attempt to somehow contribute to making a word and society where my son and others like him are better understood and accepted. He’s the most special and complex person I’ve met and I’m learning more every day. I hope you enjoy my page and encourage you to be an advocate for kids and adults who need a voice and support.
