You are right need to go to the local TV station for the story.  The link was on Topix though.

AUGUST is autism acceptance month. (or should be!) As always, just my opinion.

Every month should be autism acceptance month. But August is a good one in my book.

I'm a former CPA that now practices mental health counseling. 

In 2002, I was introduced to the world of autism, special needs, and lack of available services in central Alabama. 
My child was diagnosed with Autistic Disorder and (most likely) mild intellectual disability at the age of 29 months by the clinical research staff at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN. I didn't know anything about autism, how to find support services, or meet other parents in my local community. The clinical research team created a very detailed and aggressive treatment plan for my son during our visit at Vanderbilt. I made a promise to myself, if ever I were given the opportunity to help other mothers, fathers and individuals living with ASD, I would.
In August 2011, 3 believers (Linda Bryan, Caroline Gomez, PhD. and Dorn Majure, PsyD.) and 1 dreamer (me) incorporated the Autism Spectrum Counseling Center. Our organization is classified by the IRS as a 501 (c) (3) public charity. We offer best-practice, evidence-based behavioral mental health treatment through outpatient services for children, adolescents, and adults diagnosed with mental health disorders most often identified during childhood. 

The Autism Spectrum Counseling Center is the only organization in central AL that specializes in helping individuals diagnosed with autism.

PS. We never, ever ask for any compensation from our consumers. Our organization relies on donations, fundraisers, individual and corporate sponsorship to support our mission.
