I am Bronwen Manning. I have three boys ages 13, 10 and 8. We lived in Summerville, SC for 2 years and previously in Greenville, SC for 8 years. My oldest has Autism and was diagnosed at 9. We were told by his teachers that they thought he was autistic in third grade when he moved to a gifted program. We were shocked and it had never ever crossed our minds as he was always ahead of the milestone and very bright. Along with that he has ADHD and anxiety. My two other boys also have ADHD and anxiety. On top of autism, my oldest was diagnosed with Eosinophilic Esophagitis and sees a specialist in Greenville, SC and he is anaphylactic to tree nuts. My middles son also has Eosinophilic Esophagitis and Eosinophilic Gastritis. They both strictly avoid dairy and corn. We have had some bumps along the way as my son is highly social but could not understand how to relate to other kids. With help he has turned things around. He is very bright and plays the double bass. I want other families to be able to see progress in their children too. I look forward to improving the lives of families who are challenged by autism. We all deserve a great life!
