But this is a fact: there used to be one in 3 thousand of such children, now one in 150. I realized that Thiago is an autist very late, when he was already 3 years old. But I just couldn't accept it - like other mothers who find themselves in a similar situation. How it is? Naturally, there was a shock, and in general a nightmare, and all the work ... He did not speak - he was silent. Rather, he uttered some isolated words. They say that autistic people don't look in the eyes. Not true, he looked in the eyes. And he smiled, he was absolutely normal. But it happens that you turn to him, but it is as if you are not there for him, he is in some kind of world. He can't tell you how the school is going. At first it was the end of the world for me. But then I very quickly got myself together and said: "So, there is no time to wait, we must act quickly." The sooner you act, the better the result - that's all, ”Netrebko admitted.
She advises all mothers of such children not to become hysterical, but to act.
“The only thing I can tell the mother of an autistic child is to find a professional who will work with him, and the more hours a week, the better.
