Please help encourage my daughter to do this. She is 13 and even did the music for it. I think it will be great if she will be able to do this as a job some day since I fear there isn't much jobs out there for people with autism.

The Autism Society of Alabama says it "takes the lead" on connecting people with information and resources related to autism. I loved getting to meet Mary Robin Bynum, her adorable daughter Emily, and Charlotte!
This wonderful organization has so much to offer families across our state.

Meet Brailynn Camille! We are impressed by the innovation and intellect she has displayed at such an early age.
-
Brailynn is a girl with autism who channels her passion for individuality through writing, leadership and dance.
-
Brailynn’s mother shared her advice to fellow autism families, “Do not take the Autism diagnosis as a negative. Autism is what makes your child unique. They are of such brilliance that society doesn't always understand them. Never count your child out because you never know what greatness awaits for your child in the future. View the diagnosis as a new door that opened instead of an old door that closed. Where society is the box, our children stand on top of the box."

Today, thanks to Sam's donation, Tuscaloosa became the county with the most Carter Kits in Alabama. Earlier this year, we told you about Sam's generous birthday mission to support first responders who interact with children or adults with autism. Because of his fundraiser, 35 Carter Kits, bags of sensory resources, were distributed. Everyone deserves safety. These bags facilitate safe interactions tailored to the experience of individuals with special needs. Thank you, Sam,  for supporting this program! @spdowling @carter_kits

-
Bradlee is a young man with autism who channels his passion for creativity and the world through art.
-
Bradlee’s mother encourages fellow autism families to, “Keep being hopeful. Keep your faith! While Bradlee struggles with anxiety and maladaptive behaviors at times, I will remain hopeful. I will continue to see light and purpose.”
