“It seems you can ask any friend, any relative and they’ll be able to tell you about someone they know with autism. Or direct you to a good doctor who can help.”

He also opened up about how he found something amiss with Mary when she was just two in age.

“[She] didn’t process information like you or I do, and did not pick up on social cues,”

“Seek answers, and the earlier the better.”
