“Sarah and Jo have quickly built an extremely positive relationship with my 16 year old son. After many years of hardly leaving his bedroom, he recently attended a difficult meeting regarding his care, and was able to articulate his views in a calm manner. With Sarah’s support, his hidden personality is beginning to shine through, and he is starting to understand what it means to have a PDA profile. I can’t thank AuTC enough.”
