Autism Training for NYC Search and Rescue Team

This post is written by Nola Waill, an intern with Family Services at Autism Speaks and a Nationally Registered Emergency Medical Technician (EMT).  Nola is a student at Washington University in St. Louis as a psychology major and has a profound interest in developmental disorders.  Her background as an emergency first responder has shaped her perspective on autism wandering and has personally compelled her to spread the word on autism safety awareness.  

God Watched Over Him

This is a post by Tessie Hooker, the grandmother of a six-year-old boy with autism. 

My 6-year-old grandson has to be watched constantly. He has autism and can only say a few words and most of that is repeating words you say. We keep a chain on the front and back door to keep him safe.
