ok Doc, Deans son Andrew has severe autism, and functions as a 2-3 year old. there is so much more to Andrews condition that you don't know! When did you ever see a person with the functions of a two year old go to college or get married? This is what his father was referring to! there is no meds to fix this! The kriebels are great people! did you know that not only are they family with disabilities, they also do for Children with disabilities, their foundation raises money each year for local children! They do the fannie float and other fund raisers! i am ashamed for you!
