As some of you may know, and the rest are about to find out, my son Andrew has been diagnosed with PDD(pervasive developmental disorder), which is categorized as a disorder within the Autism spectrum. Andrew was given the official diagnosis about 4 years ago, I can tell you the road leading to that diagnosis was very very difficult, not only for Andrew but for his Mother and I. Andrews mother, Jennifer has been my Hero and Andrews savior during that journey. The Autism Resource Center was definatley a burden lifter for all of us. The information and support given to us by the center has helped us improve Andrews quality of life today as well as for the future. Andrew, I believe, will grow up to be a good person who WILL be able to function and thrive in society, unlike children who do not recieve proper support. I know first hand that the right support for a troubled child makes all the difference in the world.
Show your support by donating to the Autism Resource Center's Walk for Autism. heres a link to donate online through Andrews page or you can contact the Center directly or send me a PM for more info. http://www.firstgiving.com/phelpsteam
