ASACV Value to me: My son has a rare syndrome (1 in 12 million) and did not initially have the diagnosis of autism when we joined ASACV.  However, I found the resources to be invaluable when navigating the special needs journey- from seminars with world leaders on topics regarding autism, their resources website, and, most importantly, the passion and advocacy of Bradford Hulcher.  I have contacted ASACV multiple times with questions- and have received informed advice- not only from knowing what the status is in the community and legislature but also from first-hand experience with a child with autism.  Since our son’s diagnosis with autism, all of our family members have joined as well as my son’s childcare provider.  I can’t thank ASACV for all it has provided my family!
