Autism Presents Greater Challenges After Graduation

I had never read about the first child diagnosed with autism and I was sitting here and thought to Google it so I thought I’d share what I’ve found.

Donald’s story is filled with acceptance, happiness, and hope. It was very cool to learn about him.
