My 2 1/2 year old was recently diagnosed with ASD. Even before we received his diagnosis, we were introduced to the special needs services community in Torrance, CA where so many individuals and organizations helped my son Ethan make such wonderful progress through early intervention. Ethan is in Pediatric Therapy Network’s Leaps and Bounds program, receving pediatric therapy at Kids in Motion and Bright Beginnings for Kids, and continues to get support from the Harbor Regional Center. I also get support as a parent at PTN and HRC, with their events/classes and support groups.
This is our way of giving back to those who have generously helped us. I would like to invite you to walk with our team – “Team Hope” – because we believe that spreading autism awareness and supporting families through fundraising events such as these can ignite hope in the hearts of those who have loved ones with autism or are in the spectrum themselves. We are walking to raise funds for the mission of Autism Speaks – to fuel innovative research and make connections to critical lifelong supports and services for the autism community. Please support us by donating and help me meet our fundraising goal – and you, too, can join the team and make an impact for people living with autism!
