My son, Randy, was in an accident as an adult that changed his abilities. Since our lives changed that day, I’ve spent a lot of time working with other families who have a special needs family member, including children and adults who have autism. I’m not proud to say that before I started volunteering, I hadn’t spent much time with people of any age who have ASD, so it’s truly been moving to make connections with these families. Our experiences aren’t exactly the same, but in a lot of ways, we have much in common.
