Family Stories

The families we serve inspire us every day

We want to thank our families for sharing their incredible journeys. From raising children on the autism spectrum to caring for an adult with a rare disability, these families and individuals have unique perspectives to share. They are why we do what we do.

Meet the Myers and their 5-year-old son Grant, who is on the autism spectrum. Their love and dedication to their son is incredible, and they have some great advice for other parents.

Gloria Watrous talks about her journey raising her now adult son, who was diagnosed with Smith-Magenis syndrome, a rare developmental disorder. Their strength and love for each other is an inspiration.

We thank the Darr Family for sharing their video. Their two sons, who were diagnosed with Sensory Processing Disorder, participated in an ice skating performance. It is a joy to watch and hear their story.
