Later, we will get to know the Creating Neurodiverse Community, a group of mothers who give each other mutual support and try to educate the community on what it means to live within the autism spectrum.

Finally, we will hear from one mother's perspective about how she has learned to understand and live with her son's diagnosis. Her young son will take us to Aim High, where he attended his preschool years.
