Kathleen is a grandparent, who as a senior citizen found herself acting as parent to her grandson. Early on she realized there were learning problems and started to address them on her own. It took 5 years before the diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder was made. As a young parent some forty-five years earlier, she raised a dyslexic daughter. During that time, she read anything she could find on how to teach a child to read. Drawing on the skills and methods she learned, she and her husband of 49 years are successfully helping their grandson overcome some of the hurdles that Autism presents.
