Autism Awareness Day: The Family Experience
When children come into the world the last thing we think is that the child is going to encounter a difficult developing experience. Babies come into the world so innocently and unprepared for the road ahead. Their survival depends on the love and care of their parent(s), but their overall development is controlled by biology, that is, genes.
When children are untreated due to lack of funds, insurance coverage, or access to care, the nightmare becomes a tragedy.
In recognition of Autism Awareness Day Tuesday, April 2, 2013, I would like to share these videos with you. If you know someone with a child or family member with an autism spectrum disorder I encourage you to pass this along.
All the best
