“Everything you always wanted to know about having a child with autism and intellectual disability but were afraid to ask.”

That’s the title of the Instagram Live I’ll be doing Tuesday, August 9 (that’s tomorrow!) at 6:30 pm EST.

My 28-yr-old son (Diego) is autistic and intellectually disabled, as you may know if you follow my little publication. I’m also a special education teacher. I’ve seen and experienced a lot!

Below is the link to my Instagram account. Hope you tune in! Feel free to let me know your questions in advance by responding.

Dear Special Nation citizens,

Here is what happened in year 2 of my 30-year marriage: the birth of my son Diego, who, over time, came to be diagnosed as autistic, bipolar and cognitively disabled (they called it “mental retardation” but I believe that’s no longer considered a PC term).

It’s True: Having a Child Changes Everything

Anyhow, that’s the way I remember it.

Thank you for reading,

Daniella

PS: I’m revisiting and writing about my marriage story in chronological order. Episode 1:

First Marriage, Then Baby
