Learning a child has autism spectrum disorder (ASD) can be a scary time for some families. Even with more awareness and education around the diagnosis in today’s world, there are a lot of unknowns as to what it means for the reality of the kiddo the people closest to him or her. The good news is, we often hear that the diagnosis is the first step towards a better life, so parents do not need to be afraid – or wait – to take the leap to find answers.
Don’t just take our word for it. In the video above, Kym, a mother of two boys at Hopebridge, Jorden and Javaughn, shares her story to put minds at ease.
After a challenging pregnancy and NICU experience with Jordan, he remained on track developmentally in his early life. It wasn’t until he started regressing – stopped smiling as much, developments slowed down, didn’t play with toys appropriately – that she sought help.
Naturally, she was nervous at first, but fast-forward to now, and she is over the moon with her choices. She has enjoyed the journey with her boys and how autism therapy at Hopebridge has transformed them.
“I feel like it’s a privilege for my children to go there, but I think they feel the other way; that it’s a privilege for them to service our kiddos.”
