At the age of 2, Tom is already different. He doesn't make eye contact, has a language delay, has inexplicable fits, and has a passion for kitchen whips which he plays with for hours. Tom is my son.

After a series of examinations, the diagnosis is made: Tom has an autism spectrum disorder. This marks the beginning of a protracted battle.

Speech and psychomotor therapists as well as child psychiatrists see him every week to help him move forward. Surprisingly, his language improves significantly. He starts school accompanied by a dedicated assistant, and even though he doesn’t play with the other children and is allergic to mathematics, "he manages".
