Chances Advocates derived from our journey as parents to our 5-year-old Autistic son. Our son has changed our lives in so many positive ways. Our son was diagnosed at the age of 2 years old and was non-verbal until the age of 5. After receiving the diagnosis of Autism in 2018, as a family, we felt lost, sad, confused, and had limited places to turn to. During this time, my husband and I struggled with the denial and acceptance stages. As a licensed clinical social worker, I decided to advocate for a smooth transition to services for autistic children while focusing on the physical and mental well-being of the parent/ caregiver. Our goal is to decrease the feeling of stress, depression, and isolation while families navigate and embark on this journey.
Our mission is to provide a smooth pathway to help children and families through the early stages of an Autism diagnosis. Focusing on providing emotional support, counseling, case management, education, resources, and encouragement to all families.
