What Happens When Your Child Is Diagnosed With Asperger's?

Words: mater mea 

An unexpected diagnosis plunged this woman into a new world.

 

Darcel White of The Mahogany Way was surprised to learn from a doctor that her daughter was on the autism spectrum. She shares how her family has moved forward since the diagnosis, dispels myths around autism, and explains how she has supported her daughter post diagnosis.
