Blanche- A Grandma’s perspective: Autism

Blanche is a woman in her mid-70’s whose husband had passed in recent years. Blanche has a grandchild named Bobby who came to live with her when he was six years old. Blanche noticed Bobby’s problems, but did not realize the extent of them until he started living with her. A definitive diagnosis of being on the Autism spectrum was not made until Bobby was in his 20’s. Raising her grandchild has proven to be difficult, however, Blanche has found joys in the changes of her life.
