Hello everyone! My name is Aryan Dwivedi, and I am currently a sophomore at Lynbrook High School, in San Jose, California. My sister Anjali is 8 years old, and she is under the Autism Spectrum.
Throughout the years, our family has adjusted in many ways and learned some valuable lessons, all for the sake of providing a strong, loving, and supportive environment for Anjali. We have gone through many unique experiences with my sister. There are many ups and downs, road bumps, and emotional moments when dealing with the development of a child with special needs, such as Anjali.
This brings me to the purpose of this blog. I want to use this platform to share the day to day lifestyle of a child who has special needs. Through this blog, I hope I can spread awareness regarding the massive changes family members implement in order to cater to a special needs child, which is often an important dynamic that goes unnoticed. Such children have multiple facets to their personality, and I plan to share some of those interesting aspects of special needs children, such as Anjali. This blog is also an attempt to familiarize and educate people on the rapidly growing condition of Autism Spectrum, and other such conditions.
I plan to write about a broad range of experiences and unique instances. My blog topics may include something as meaningful as my sister’s interactions with her therapists, or something as small , but unique, as my sister’s mealtime habits.
Overall, I hope these experiences of my sister and family help you learn more about special needs children and their families.
