When I was given the opportunity to do some interviews with parents of autistic children I knew I had to talk to Chaz. I had never had an in depth talk with him about how it felt to hear that Zain had autism. I have said for years that society thinks we all walk the same path once our children are diagnosed with autism, that our stories somehow become the same as soon as our child is labeled as autistic. Nothing is further from the truth. My hope is that the interviews I’ve been doing will give some a different view of the parents that raise these remarkable children.
