Thank you to everyone who showed up at the Autism Support Group and a big thank you to Corey Walker for holding the meeting. Karli Ralston ~ Miss Teen Prince George 2013 also attended to help reduce the stigma! Thank you Karli!
Corey is an inspiration, not only does he have Aspergers and has personally been affected by the stigma, he facilitates this support group in the hopes of helping others affected and family members gain insight and increase awareness. The group shares helpful ideas in managing associated symptoms and tips for daily support.
Those who have been diagnosed with Autism at a younger age and are given the proper intervention have a greater chance to learn communication that otherwise seems simple in everyday life to others. School aged children and their parents benefit from behavioral and skills support services (such as the Autism Support Group), with this help an increasing number of adults with Autism may be able to live independently.
