Hi, I’m Sara!
It is so nice to have you here! This blog is meant to provide personal stories from our family, educational resources for teens with autism, as well as inspiration! Our family is doing the best that we can to help my 15 year old brother with autism learn to navigate the world as he starts his transition into adulthood. We hope to help provide you with information to help your loved one reach their highest potential! I currently work as a pediatric occupational therapist and my mother is a special education teacher homeschooling my teenage brother. Together we are providing our knowledge to help your family along this journey in life! We look forward to getting to know more about you and your family!
