Autism Warriors

Military families are fighting a war against the disabling impacts of autism. Autism has no known cause and no known cure. Our military community is based upon a warrior ethos of never giving up, never surrendering, and defeating this enemy. Through teamwork, communication and support we are helping our children reach their full potential.
