Emmett was officially diagnosed with high-functioning Autism Spectrum Disorder in January 2016 at the age of 4. Since then we have had weekly Occupational Therapy and Speech Therapy sessions. Emmett's progress has been amazing! Even though most people may have heard the term "autism," there is still a lot people don't know or understand about the disorder. It's a daily learning experience.
