She walked into the hotel lobby wearing a black cowboy shirt with a colorful design splashed across the upper chest. I was completely and unashamedly star struck. I had been talking with the director of the upcoming documentary, “Autism in Love” when I saw her walk in. I stopped speaking midsentence and my mouth hung open. “There she is…” I finally said out loud. “It’s Temple Grandin.”
CARD founder and Executive Director Dr. Doreen Granpeesheh is coming to Autism Live!
How many Autism Moms does it take to change the world? Just one. Holly Robinson Peete is the perfect example. When her son was diagnosed with Autism her world changed so she changed the world. She helped her son, researched, asked the hard questions, held on to her family and then reached out to help others. Holly’s journey is one of empowerment, whether helping families to get access to services through the HollyRod Foundation or helping her other children to process their feelings about having a sibling on the spectrum or eloquently telling rappers to use their words wisely, Holly is the epitome of a strong Autism mom.
