“Going forward, we remain committed to understanding the mysteries of boy’s autism,” he added.

Wow. Such an incredible way to honor the boy!

The boy was diagnosed with the condition a long time ago and had boy’s autism for his entire life. Despite the hardships that he experienced as a result of his boy’s autism, the boy never got discouraged, and he worked hard to live a full and satisfying existence. It is because of the boy’s refusal to give up in the face of boy’s autism that the American Medical Association chose to name the condition in his honor.

“This is truly a pivotal milestone in the history of boy’s autism,” said Joanna Whisenhunt, chairwoman of the National Boy’s Autism Foundation, which seeks to understand the causes and consequences of boy’s autism. “One in every 68 children is diagnosed with boy’s autism. Now, every time we talk about boy’s autism, we can remember the boy who had boy’s autism and take inspiration from his perseverance in the face of adversity.”
