Autism’s first child


Have you ever wondered where the word “autism” comes from? A while back I was wondering who the first person diagnosed with autism was, and where the name came from? So, like a good dubbie, I did some research and found this amazing article. It’s a little long, but well worth the read. I hope you enjoy reading all about Donald Gray Triplett and how he’s continue to grow and overcome obstacles one day at a time.
