These parents faced harrowing experiences, felt isolated and unheard. Yet they also found ways to really, truly help their autistic children. This in the face of a commonly held belief about autism that “there’s nothing that can be done.” I really appreciate hearing all these different people, with very different lives and perspectives, tell their story. I’m not sure which I find most powerful: their love and determination, or all the many and varied things they found that helped their children. Both carry a strong message of hope, one that I believe is strong enough to resonate for years to come and really help change how children are treated in relation to vaccination and also to autism.
