Learning About Autism

We went to the monthly FAA (Foothill Autism Alliance) meeting last night in Pasadena. The panel of speakers was 4 teen-agers with autism who use assistive technology to communicate. The parents were there to aid them in giving their presentations to the audience. Several of the parents mentioned how much their child started to bloom and blossom when they were finally able to communicate their thoughts and feelings. It was heart-warming to see and hear how much the teens have grown and how much the parents were excited and proud of their achievements!
Please contact us if you are interested in attending future meetings. We are working on building a car pooling group.
