Mission

We exist to provide resources, advocacy and a sense of community for families affected by Autism.

Vision

Our vision is to disperse information to other families in their journey through the world with autism.

Values

  1. Autism does not define an individual. It is only a condition that the individual has.
  2. Individuals with Autism should receive treatment necessary to help them reach their full potential.
  3. Autism awareness and education are the driving factors for progress in Autism research, treatment, and recovery and policy reform.
  4. Support from the Autism community and the community as a whole is necessary for well being of those affected by Autism.

Our Story

On January 30, 2007 we were blessed with a beautiful baby boy. Noah was born from a pregnancy fraught with nervousness on my part, albeit uneventful. I’m diabetic and Noah was 11 lbs., 2 oz. when he was born. The pediatrician that gave him his first exam told us that he was perfect. We certainly thought so and still do.

Being that I am an only child and Larry having been the youngest in his family, neither of us were particularly familiar with developmental milestones. Of course we had the obligatory copy of “What to Expect…” which I looked at each month. The first time that I thought Noah was different from the other babies was when he was a year old. more
