Since he started participating in the Adult Community Autism Program, Fred has developed a life of his own, separate from his parents’. Not only has he developed a stronger sense of self, but he feels empowered.
He has become much happier in school, knowing he has more control over his life, as well as the support of a Direct Support Professional who values and respects him for who he is. Fred looks forward to planning his day with her.
Now that Fred is building his skills, his parents have been able to let go and allow him to develop into a more independent young man.
