The Heart of Maine Autism Fair Scheduled This Saturday-Sept. 29

When our grandson, Jeremiah, was diagnosed with Autism as a preschooler, Shirley and I had no idea what to think. We were asking ourselves all kinds of questions like: What is this Autism thing? Will it get worse? Is there a cure? Is there any help out there for our beloved, Jeremiah?

I will tell you that Jeremiah is considered pretty high functioning. He is incredibly bright and communicates well. But there were a few noticeable quirky things that set him apart from the rest of his peers.

And you know something? School systems are struggling in dealing with this disorder. Some schools can handle it better than others.

Thank the Lord his parents are so dedicated to their kids, and as a result left no stone unturned in the search for answers. They in turn kept us informed on all of there findings. And I’ll be honest with you, there’s so much we still don’t understand, and as we’ve found out, there’s still a lot the medical profession is still discovering about Autism.

Now if your child has been diagnosed with Autism, and you’re wondering what the future holds for the child and you, then you may want to check out the ‘The Heart of Maine Autism Fair’ that’s coming up this Saturday, September 29, from 9AM to 1PM at Reeds Brook Middle School in Hampden, 28A Main Road South.

There will be presentations on the latest Autism research, what is happening for children with ASD and other disabilities in rural Maine, family rights, opportunities and responsibilities, as well as demonstrations in alternative therapies and effective practices for children with a variety of disabilities (source http://www.asmonline.org).
