My Life So Far

I was born on June 23, 1996 in the city of Portland, OR. I did spend some years in Portland. Papa got a new job in Los Angeles and we moved to LA. I was two years old then. Papa got further transferred to Austin, TX, so we moved to Austin.

I was diagnosed with Autism when I was 3 years old. In Austin we stayed for a year. In Austin I started reading little with the help of my mom and my teacher. Austin sounded just good to me and I deeply miss it. Papa got transferred back to LA and I started school in Santa Clarita area.

I was the lucky one to see Soma when we moved back to LA. Soma’s Rapid Prompting Method (RPM) helps me communicate and learn academically. It was because of Soma I am able to learn. Mom does the most of the teaching and communication. Papa does most of Gym Training. I am doing my job the best as I could in school and at home.

In Santa Clarita I used to spell for my teacher and to my aide. It took a while for me to spell for them. I was so happy to have good teachers in Santa Clarita. Then we bought a house in La Verne, I joined Lone Hill Middle School. The school was kind of good and was really happy to graduate from Middle School. After that I joined San Dimas High School. I am beginning to adjust to my new school. I am so happy to have Adrian as my aide. Ms Stevens, my teacher is good, and happy to have a good teacher again. Even though I don’t respond to my teacher, it takes a little time to spell for her.

I am blessed to have lovely parents who really takes care of me and keeps me happy all the time.
