Blog - Try Defying Gravity


Alysia writes about the joys and challenges of raising three boys, two of whom have autism spectrum disorders. She writes about their growth, and her own growth as well. She has a focus on developing self-advocacy skills in her sons, such as in a post in which she writes about discovering that her six-year-old son has some of the best ideas about how to keep himself motivated in school.

Get to know me:

The challenges of raising three boys, including two on the autism spectrum

I’m through accepting limits
’cause someone says they’re so
Some things I cannot change
But til I try I’ll never know.

The lyrics to “Defying Gravity”from the broadway play “Wicked”make me cry every time I hear them. Raising three boys is challenging enough, but when our middle son was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, life became that much more complicated. As his mom I have to help him and our two other children understand who he is, and that his autism doesn’t have to limit him or us as a family. My goal is to have them all grow up to be amazing people, each in their own special way, to have them kiss me goodbye and defy gravity.
