Autism Light #3 is Diane Soucy
Diane Soucy writes this in her story on her website about being an autism mother, "I worked almost as hard as my Matthew to educate myself and get him the services he desperately needed. It was no easy battle, but it is paying off. Matthew has made steady progress, and makes tiny gains everyday. Along his journey is his family, for the roller coaster ride. Quite frankly, sometimes we, in turn, want to get off. But there is no getting off; we're on it for the journey."
Diane Soucy was interviewed on Comcast Newsmakers for a past Autism Awareness Month and the following video was produced about her.
