Max, Autism and Getting Bullied, what would you do?

By McNall Mason, Max’s Mom   Max came home yesterday with a disturbing story about a kid named Ben. I wrote about Ben yesterday after Max told me he doesn’t want to be autistic anymore. We’ve been chatting about Ben all year long. Max knows Ben is autistic, he sees the similarities, hand flapping, tantrums, […]

The Math Miracle

By McNall Mason (Max’s Mom).   Some kids on the spectrum excel at academics. Max is not one of those for whom school work comes automatically easy… “that kid” is my older two sons who never had problems and barely had to study at all and passed everything easy-cheesy style. Max on the other hand […]

Max’s Art Evolution

Foreword – Max From The Planet of Cool

I have long wanted to write a children’s book based on Max and the funny things he thinks and says but it wasn’t until 2012 when, out of desperation to help Max adjust to a new school, I decided I was talented enough to do it.   In 2006, at the age of 4, Max […]

Max isn’t so different after all

By McNall Mason (Max’s Mom)   We had an action backed autism sprinkled weekend! Max is a trooper.   Saturday morning we were off like a rocket to the Exceptional Families Book Fair at our local Barnes and Noble… where we had our books waiting for us on an author table so we could do […]
