LIAM + GLO MANIFESTO
Be brave living your life, your life is harder than it looks. Liam and Glo, special needs lifestyle blog, is intended to give mamas of not-so-average bears the template to achieve a life that’s stylish, adventurous, empowered, and well-nourished. Whether it’s parenting, homeschooling and home therapy, venturing off on trips coast to coast in Michigan, translating trends, creating gluten-free meals or seeking an overall sense of wellness, Liam and Glo’s message for abnormal normal moms and their not-so-average bears remains – live intentionally, seeking less overwhelm and more enrichment.
Welcome to my abnormal normal! My name’s Gloria Trevino and I’m the creator, editor, host of Abnormal Normal Mom Life podcast, and the mom half of Liam and Glo. This is my digital journal for sharing our journey finding less overwhelm and more enrichment and all the things that inspire or challenge us.

Liam is my eccentric, spirited, true love and homie with an extra chromie. He loves Detroit, vanilla steamers, running, theatre, cuddly dogs, Halloween, and trips to Target. We share our experiences and perspectives living and learning with labels including Trisomy 13, Autism, Dyspraxia, DCD, Speech Apraxia, Auditory Processing Disorder, and Sensory Processing Disorder (just to name the big dogs he walks all day, erryday) including a few of my own.
As you’ll learn, from the timeline below, my life unfolded much differently than I anticipated. You can read my uncensored retrospection series, beginning with X-Men Origins. From 2010-2016, my own life felt like my adversary with punches faster and stronger than Mayweather.
Thanks for your companionship and support. xx Glo
Here we are and this is how we got here.

More Diagnoses + Therapy
At 3 years old, Liam was diagnosed with speech apraxia, oral apraxia, receptive and expressive language delay, dyspraxia, developmental coordination disorder, hypotonia, and sensory processing disorder (affecting all 8 senses). He started private speech and occupational therapy while I continued to supplement at home. Luckily, he was fluent in ASL and he and I could easily communicate.
