Description: 

For Autism Awareness Month, I list an alphabet of words, both positive and negative, that describe my autistic son, Jacob.

As I say in the post:

"This is his autism. Our autism. Autism as we know it.

Different for everyone, this is Jacob's particular flavor.

Some days it's the sauce on the side and some days it's the whole meal.  Some days tangy, others bitter.

But it is always a part of who Jake is."
