Hi and welcome to my website! This is me, Tanner!
I am 6 years old and live with autism. My Mom and I have created this website in hopes of helping families better understand kids like me! We also hope to educate those who are unfamiliar with autism, raise awareness, give support and offer ideas and information.
Autism is a neurological disorder that affects the functioning of the brain, causing problems with communication, behavior, sensory input and learning. It also causes many different medical issues as well.
Autism affects 1 in every 88 children. More children will be diagnosed with autism this year than with AIDS, diabetes and cancer combined!
There is no medical detection and no cure.
I hope you enjoy the following pages, they will give you a small view of what it is like, for me, to live with autism. They will also educate you, make you laugh, make you cry, give you a better understanding and hopefully spread awareness so we can find a cure.
