Meet Jack, Isaac and Petya

Jack, 25, Isaac, 14 and Petya, 10

In 1997 the word autism was not as well known, and we were told the odds were 1 in 1,650. Funny how that number seems so low statistically, but when you are the one in any statistic the impact and reality is huge.

 

 

To celebrate World Autism Month, we are highlighting each our of mission objectives in a series of five virtual profiles. Each week in April, we will share meaningful conversations with families and individuals in the autism community.

This week, meet Carin and Ron and their children Jack, Alyssa, Peter, Tommy, Isaac and Petya – whose experiences span the vast autism spectrum, and who reflect just how important it is for us to come together to increase global understanding and acceptance of people with autism.  

The story shared above represents the experience, views and perspectives of the individual(s) highlighted. We aim to share stories across the spectrum and throughout the life span, but the information provided on our website is not a recommendation, referral or endorsement of any resource, therapeutic method, or service provider and does not replace the advice of medical, legal or educational professionals.
