13 years ago, Matthew was diagnosed with High Functioning Autism. Since this diagnosis, I have received many new life lessons, and learned from service providers in Matthew's Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Therapy. I have also reconnected with friends from my past, who now have children with ASD, and made many new friends along the way.
Organizations like Autism Speaks help raise awareness of our children and their different ways of life. We will continue to walk to support this amazing cause.
