In Their Own Words

Better Than Normal

By Mike Wuebben, Autism Speaks Chief of Digital Strategy

I remember what our pediatrician said about our newborn son Willem just before signing the discharge papers.  There’s something “not normal” about him, she said. 

Willem has been diagnosed with Moebius Syndrome, Duane’s Syndrome, strabismus, facial paralysis, hypotonia, cataplexy, narcolepsy, vertigo, sensory processing disorder and severe acid reflux among other maladies.
