Joseph is 10 years of age and in many respects a typical 10 year old; cheeky, funny and sometimes sulky. Only one minor difference is that Joseph is autistic.

The blog was started to share with you our journey from birth to present, highlighting the highs and lows, hopefully with a touch of humour and reality together with those times that are downright bloody hard.

If you dislike colourful language and honesty, than this is not the blog for you but I wanted to provide something that I was looking for myself after Joseph was diagnosed with ASC (hence the title of the page….)

If you want it tarting up then look away now as I aim to tell it exactly how it is but hope you stick with our colourful journey!

You can find out more about us on instagram and twitter too.

    Hello, My name is Destiny. I’m a student at Indiana University of PA. I am taking a education of exceptional persons class and we had to choose a media source to follow. The media source had to be that of a family with a child with a disability. I chose your blog.
