Meet persons with autism; get to know the world the way they do…. and you’ll never be the same again. This is the magic they create!

They carry with them a certain innocence and truth, combined with a total involvement in whatever they do that absolutely fascinates an observer. No casual superficial person can get to really know them, but if one does truly care, they sense it out and bring you into their world. For unaware parents, many a thing their child with autism does, is embarrassing, and, may often leave them in stress, not sure of what their child may do next and how to manage her.
