    Autism, Seeing the World From a Different Angle

    in Family

    Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and autism are both general terms for a group of complex disorders of brain development. These disorders are characterized, in varying degrees, by difficulties in social interaction, verbal and nonverbal communication and repetitive behaviors. With the May 2013 publication of the DSM-5 diagnostic manual, all autism disorders were merged into one umbrella diagnosis of ASD. Previously, they were recognized as distinct subtypes, including autistic disorder, childhood disintegrative disorder, pervasive developmental disorder-not otherwise specified (PDD-NOS) and Asperger syndrome. 


    ASD can be associated with intellectual disability, difficulties in motor coordination and attention and physical health issues such as sleep and gastrointestinal disturbances. Some persons with ASD excel in visual skills, music, math and art.


    Autism appears to have its roots in very early brain development. However, the most obvious signs of autism and symptoms of autism tend to emerge between 2 and 3 years of age. Autism Speaks continues to fund research on effective methods for earlier diagnosis, as early intervention with proven behavioral therapies can improve outcomes. Increasing autism awareness is a key aspect of this work and one in which our families and volunteers play an invaluable role.


    Please Welcome our special guests who have taken the time out to tell their stories.

    Curious Times – Readings by Donna DiPietro and Dianna Monroe

    in Spirituality

    Donna DiPietro is a psychic and paranormal investigator. She has worked on many cases including haunted houses and a haunted church, finds lost valuables, and predicted that the Pope would be shot 24 hours before it happened. She has investigated, the largest art heist in history, and has the gift of mediumship. She has spoken and written in other languages, that she does not know, to deliver messages from the other side.


    Donna has experienced a NDE and has had contact with her husband since his crossing, and hopes that by making her cases public, it will help in the advancement of paranormal research. She documents her cases at www.psychicstudy.blogspot.com. donnagroverdipietro@gmail.com.


    Dianna Monroe has been highly psychic for as long as she can remember. When she was very young, she could see and hear things that no one else could. Dianna thought everyone could read minds and frightened a lot of adults by responding to their thoughts before she heard their words.


    With no mentor to guide her, Dianna struggled through childhood and then independently studied metaphysics and explored the psychic frontier, expanding her intuitive faculties. Dianna now writes and provides intuitive readings to help others understand their psychic abilities and how they can best utilize them so they can make wiser decisions and take actions that will lead to happier, more fulfilling lives. http://www.psychicfrontier.com
