Our son Willie is 5 1/2 years old and has Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). This affects his communication and socialization as well as his behavior, his ability to regulate his emotions and his overall ability to function as a 'typical' child of his age. Our one true "goal" is to provide an environment where he is always progressing - at whatever speed is right for him - for his entire life. 

Please visit http://www.autismtreatmentcenter.org/ for full details regarding the training program. Their success stories are overwhelming and it's something we really want to try. I'd love to be formally trained and have an alternative approach for working with him at home without further overwhelming him and stressing the family because we're not using the best approach.

The funds raised here will pay for one of us (me) to attend the 5-day intenstive training program. It's a rolling schedule, so I'll be enrolling for the next introductory training that's available after the funds have been raised. Note there is no deadline and this campaign will not be closed until all funds have been raised.

As a supporter, we'll keep you well informed of Willie's progress as we implement what we've learned through regular blog posts. Thank you so much for your support...it truly does take a village!

Sincerely,

Cathy Hetrick (Willie's mom)
