Today I was told my son my 22 year old son has autism! 😭
I don't even know what that word means.
Can anyone help me?

It means you now have answers. Just because he now has a diagnosis does not mean he has changed. What it does mean is that you now have answers to how he is and why. It is a start to a new beginning. Google the word, talk to your son, seek out counseling.

As far as not knowing what autism ism Google it. You have Internet access.

Obviously it's not very severe or it would have been picked up many years ago.
You have raised him this far, why are you so distraught? It's not a death sentence.

How did he get to be 22 years old without a diagnosis?
