My little blond haired friend

This post was written by a client (and is shared with permission).  Her son, 4, has autism.  His rights were repeatedly violated by his school district.  After I supported Parents in initiating due process (a “Request for Hearing” was filed with the Bureau of Special Education Appeals), he now attends a full day ABA-based integrated preschool and has a comprehensive home program.

I applaud all of you for “Lighting it Up Blue” today.  Thought you might enjoy this one mom’s thoughts about her son’s journey, advocacy, and thinking about the future.
