Not too long after we got Johnny’s diagnosis we realized that we couldn’t help him all by ourselves and it would take a community to help him. We have met some amazing people who have helped Johnny.
From Doctors, to Intake Coordinators, to Social Workers, to Early Childhood Educators, to Clinicians, to Physiotherapists, to Occupational Therapists, to Speech Language Pathologists, to Behavior Therapists, to family coaches, to camp counselors, to university students, to high school students, to retired teachers and grandmothers who volunteered their time. To other parents of Autistic children who took courses with us and shared their heart breaking stories and their successes. To friends who have given us support and shared their own stories to family who have been understanding and helpful.
