Growing Up – Header to Next Section of ‘My Brother Michael’

Mom must have taken this picture of Dad, Mike and me (I’m on the left).  This was before Dave was born so it must be around 1954, 1955.  Mom and Dad said that they knew that Mike was different very early on, even though he was their first child.

Autism was just beginning to be acknowledged as a entity separate from other mental conditions. The public at large had no idea about autism and mental conditions were kept very much under wraps back then.
