My name is Matthew Quick and I’m 16 years old with Autism. My family and I moved from Georgia almost three years ago and I lost all my friends I had in Georgia since I was very small. The first year in Virginia was really hard on me and my family. My mom called the Autism Society Central Virginia and we started to have friends and to have some activities to go to like picnics and Christmas parties and go bowling. Some nights I get to play with other kids every time my mom wants to learn something else about Autism. I have enjoyed this activities a lot and I ask my mom to take me and it is awesome. We like Virginia now and I like to share with others that have autism.
