As a parent, finding our way to acceptance of this invader in our life, autism, is a tricky path to walk. We tend to hold out hope that things will be better once… (fill in the blank with “…he gets through special kindergarten and can go to regular first grade…” or “…he finishes high school and can go to college like other kids his age…” or “…she gets out of school and gets a job supporting herself…”).
The Mission of the National Autism Academy
- Encourage, Educate and Support parents, families and caregivers who live, love and work with those on the autism spectrum to increase understanding and effectiveness
- Create greater awareness, acceptance, understanding and accommodation in the general public
- Address and create solutions to resolve future long term issues facing families
