For those of us in the field for a few moons, it was exciting to see the number of people supporting Autism and Autism Speaks. We are humbled by the families and their resolve to make the world Autism friendly. We are grateful for involvement of the business community.

We Are Here!

We are often asked by our clients, “How bad is it (our loved one’s disability) ?”   The answer is It doesnt matter what we see clinically.  If you live with disabilities, the person under your roof is the most important, profound and clinically significant case in the world. 

Your journey is a marathon, not a sprint.  Someday, the marathon may evolve into a relay.  We wanted to share an article from The New York Times  (October 5, 2012) on a timeless subject for families living with disabilities. 

“Assuring the Care of a Family Member With Special Needs” by Ron Lieber

A Shout Out to….

October 3, 2012

 

…Turner Classic Movies for dedicating the month of October to how movies have portrayed people living with disabilities. 

….The armada of determined parents and professionals who paved the way for The Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA).  Some of these movies predate ADA so we believe they offer a heartening reminder about how much public awareness has been heightened and changed by your efforts.  We are proud to stand in the shadow of your legacy.
