"It is such an incredible gift to have an organization like Milestones Autism Resources as our guide each step of the way." - Lisa Danielpour, Parent
Lisa Danielpour offered to share her journey with us - and all of you. Hear more, in her words:
Aaron is my first born. When Aaron was 18 months, I started to wonder. Why isn't he talking yet?
As Aaron reached three and four, his development became even more alarming to me. Why do the other cute little preschoolers talk to each other in logical paragraphs while mine perfectly recites the script to endless Disney movies?
At each stage of development from childhood to adulthood we have navigated different issues, trying to figure out how can we best help him?
I've learned to trust my gut and build a team of people who combine expertise and supportiveness.
When Aaron was young, I didn't know then that Ilana Hoffer Skoff and Mia Buchwald Gelles were also struggling as parents of children with autism, they used their experiences to create this incredible organization, Milestones. Helping countless individuals, families, and professionals. And lucky us.
With the support of an incredible team by our side, my amazing son Aaron was able to graduate from Case Western Reserve University with a double major in Computer Science and Psychology.
It is such an incredible gift to have an organization like Milestones Autism Resources as our guide each step of the way. Before 2016 concludes, I encourage you to support Milestones, as you will, in turn, support families like mine.
