Life with hope.
On Kai’s first day of school, his mom posed him by a chalkboard sign that said kindergarten was the first step to college. Kai told his mom that his real first step was the Autism Society of North Carolina.
Kai was diagnosed with autism when he was two. His mom could tell that something was missing because Kai rarely cried or asked her for anything.
With help from the Autism Society of North Carolina, Kai learned to tell his parents when he needed something, and he started to acknowledge and play with his baby sister. Kai then worked on the communication and social skills he needed to be ready for kindergarten.
Kai is now thriving in school and wants to be a scientist one day. With the Autism Society of North Carolina, Kai was able to get the best start possible, and Kai’s parents had a place where they knew their son was safe and loved unconditionally.
Your gift helps more children feel the power of unconditional love.
