Who do you know that is impacted by Autism and how has that impacted you?

I have never known a world without autism. I grew up with a sibling with autism. I grew up helping him and attending recreational activities with him. This ultimately grew into a life of learning and wanting to help individuals with developmental disabilities. My life has been greatly impacted by every child, adolescent, and adult whose path has crossed mine. I’ve been blessed with the ability to help and serve individuals with autism.
