Meet my friend Renee, The Autism Advocate...

Renee is a Mama Warrior.  Mother to one exceptional boy, Austin, and wife to her husband, Barry.  In her previous life she was a marketing executive, singer, amateur shopper…then her world was turned upside-down when AUTISM entered the picture.  At 10 months old her son was given an unprecedented, extremely early autism spectrum diagnosis.  A diagnosis that was a hard won battle, a battle like no other, but one that would change the course of their lives forever.  Her world became silent when her son's world became silent, and all that mattered from that point forward was improving his life as much as possible, as quickly as possible.

Because of their success and her son’s amazing transformation, Renee's biggest passion lies in helping other parents like her.  Parents at the beginning of this confusing journey who see signs but find no help.  Who are told they are crazy, that it’s too early to see signs, too early to diagnose or too early to get help.

It’s never too early.  There are signs.  There is help.  Check out her website Autism Advocate.
