Dr. Temple Grandin gave many in Mississippi hope as she spoke about what it’s like to have autism, what parents should do, and how to push these students! If you think your child may have an autism spectrum disorder, don’t wait! Early intervention is key for these kids! I am proud to work side by side each day with parents who are working to help their child reach their potential!
