We are a group of parents and professionals whose lives have been impacted by a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder. We have gathered together to offer HOPE. We feel autism is treatable and will provide resources and programs to help with your child's progress and development. Autism is thought of as a life long sentence... Unfortunately, many parents are told their children will never talk or lead an independent life. We don't believe that! Early Intervention is so important! You are not alone! There is HOPE!
