I am the parent of a young adult with Autism. I also serve individuals with Autism as a school speech-language pathologist in Colonial Heights, Virginia. The Autism Society of Central VA has provided me with valuable training and resources to help me better navigate parenting a child with Autism. This knowledge also transfers over to my profession as a clinician dedicated to helping children on the spectrum become the best communicators they can be. I am grateful for the ASCV and the support my family has received from the staff and other parents who are trying their best to help their children grow and develop a life like ours. Thank you.
