Parents and Teachers across the globe need to realize this and push past the “budget constraints.” is the real test. More and more I am in the belief that
We can accomplish A LOT as passionate caring parents of the SPECTRUM! Grass roots efforts will be popping up!! I am seeing this EVERYWHERE!! Our individuals NEED VENUES!!

AutismHWY.com will be announcing something SPECIAL in this regard very soon!! As for “Knowing what AUTISM looks like?”… I will hope that in OUR “NEW” Creative FUTURES will start to look a little deeper MULTI~DIMENSIONAL World!! people and see if they really know what they are looking at …in this very
