My son Jacob was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder in the summer of 2016 when he was 18 months old. It took me a very long time to process the information. But once I did, I became passionate about the world of advocacy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Jacob today is a happy and healthy little boy. We do intense therapy each week, but he is slowly making progress. He is an incredible little boy who enjoys the same things as his peers. We are proud of Jacob and he has profoundly impacted my husband and 2 daughters. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀
My eldest daughter, who is 7 years old, told me that “Jacob makes me want to be a better person, mommy.”’ It is a blessing to have a child with special needs in our family. He makes us all want to be better people!
