Five years ago our oldest son, Tristan, was diagnosed autism at the age of three. Since I have been working on a Vermont system of care for individuals with ASD and advocating in Vermont and in Washington D.C. for more funding and support for families and individuals with ASD. Through my work I have seen the lack of supports for people with ASD and their families have, so I have created a business, Parenting Autism, to step in and help.
Parenting Autism produces DVDs and workbooks to help parents parent on the spectrum. In addition to our exercises and tips in our workbooks and DVDs, Parenting Autism gives back to the autism community through sponsorship of camps and local organizations.
