Autism’s different for everybody, for every
single one of my children.
In general, I work a full-time job, sometimes
even more than a full-time job.
Because everybody is completely different,
because everybody’s needs are different, it’s
hard trying to balance all of that.
Our work is focused on how we improve the
day-to-day social lives of people with autism.
And we do that in toddlers, and work with
families to build the important social skills
that we want to see in toddlers, which is making
connections with their caregivers and providing
tools to play well, all the way through adulthood
and figuring out how do we support adults
build intimate relationships.
It wasn’t that easy to treat Rebecca, so I
think she’s doing very well now.
It was wonderful to find Rush and to find
the expertise, the skills we needed.
This is going to affect some of us.
It’s going to affect a relative.
It will affect a friend’s child.
And people need to realize that, and the only
way that we’re going to do something to impact
a change is if we do this together and we find
ways to support programs.
As much as we are helping our community, we
have to rely on our community to
help and support us.
