HERE IS MY STORY..........
Toronto, Ontario, Canada, June, 2006
Papa bought me gifts of Barney tapes, Disney books sets containing many colored pictures of animals, kings, princess, airplanes, oceans and mountains. Mama would read them to me and that's how I never forgot and learned how to say the book titles. I memorized all of the titles when I was young but I forgot them now. I luv Barney videos and songs. I played with Barney a lot. He gives me so muh happy times.
Dada Lee said I had a 'photographic' memory when I was very young. She said it means I have pictures of words, music, letters and things printed on my brain. Except, she said, I can't show the pictures because my brain does not know how to communicate because I am a 'special needs' person. (Photo with Dada Lee in 2016 family weekend in Quebec City)
I asked her how I can print the pictures from my brain and she said I can't because my brain is human and not a computer. Then she said, I should always try to draw or paint stuff that are on my brain when I have time. And so, one night I had this important dream. I made a drawing of what I dreamt and showed it to Mama and Papa.
Now my cousins are grown-up too they are now going to university. I can not go to university because we have no lots of special money. I save my paycheque from Tim's and I buy my airplane ticket to travel to the Philippines to help my autistic friends there and play in concerts. This coming February 5 I will be playing with Thara Marie at the Mall Of Asia with the Angels Walk Philippines. Watch here the Autism of the Philippines Angels Walk 2015...
Papa taught me how to use the cassette player. Since I was not old enough to go to school yet I had been enjoying Barney music on my cassette player. Then, Dada Lee whose work is with computers showed me the Barney website. And even today, I always love going to www.barney.com and I go there all the time after I finished my homework. I feel very safe and happy in Barney's world. Dada Lee told me Barney is only a pretend world, I often wish Barney is real world person like me.
Papa told me I am now a big boy and Barney was for me when I was still little. Because I remember growing up with Barney and how happy I always were with Barney and friends I feel Barney will always be part of my whole life wherever I am.
Also, my favorite Web site is the Hilary Duff's official homepage because she is my favorite singer. And in the Philippines my favorite is Sarah Geronimo. Their songs make me happy. I listen to some of them and try to play on my piano by ear. I enjoy playing mostly classical music,
I now perform at concerts & recitals. Sometimes I forget I have bad manners. I go into tantrums when I get upset. My Mama & Papa teach me Control & Relax. I want to learn everything. My brain is very busy all the time.
I start high school this year. I still can't speak very well but I'm good at writing and reading. I love to be with people but I confuse them because I am learning how to act properly. I hang out with my friends Timothy & Taylor. I am very close with my cousins Ryan & Christian Carolino, Daniel Asuncion, Jill and Gil Garrovillo & Ligene Pilar and I sleepover at their house. I miss my cousins Cheenee & Jerome Carolino & Audrey Adea in Manila.
My youngest uncle Arnold Quesada is my big buddy. He lives in Scarborough. I feel safe when I am with them because they teach me and assist me how to talk and be social with people.
I like to dance hip-hop. My cousin Audrey taught me the otso otso and chiwawa. I like line dancing, too. My Dad and Mom take me to my music lesson every week. I practice my piano pieces every day for 2 hours at home. Dada Lou is my audience. She is my mom's mom. She patiently sits and listens to me the whole practice time. I live at home in Mississauga with my parents & my Lolo Romy, Lola Nene Adea and my Tito Leo. I hope you enjoy my music.
Please enjoy and visit my other pages. My Dada Lee is helping me build this Web site. She was also my caregiver when I was a baby. Dada Lee is my mom's aunt & best friend. She is a piano & Yamaha keyboard player. Dada Lee introduced me to her computer and her Yamaha digital piano when I was 4 years old. I learned fast how to play the Barney song with my right hand all by myself. Barney makes my life very happy. I have his collections of books and cassette tapes since I was 3 years old.

What causes autism?
This is a question everyone asks. Unfortunately, it is also one of the most
difficult to answer because the pattern of behaviours from which autism is
diagnosed may not result
There is, however, strong evidence that autism can be caused by a variety of physical reasons, all of which affect brain development. It is not due to emotional problems or emotional deprivation. Onset of autism is almost always before the age of three years. It affects four times as many boys as girls, and has no class or racial barriers.
What is the prognosis?
Autism is not curable but it is treatable, especially if it is diagnosed early in life.
Who do I go to for a diagnosis?
If you suspect that an autistic spectrum disorder is present, you need to refer your child for a specialist diagnosis and assessment as early as possible. Start with your local GP who should be able to refer you on to a local expert. Source: <http://www.autism.org.uk/en-gb.aspx>
