100 Day Kit

In late February, Autism Speaks unveiled a new 100 Day Kit. This kit is specifically designed for families that have just received a diagnosis of autism within the last 6 months. It is personalized with information pertaining to the age of your child. It is also available online (not personalized) for anyone to view. This wasn't available at the time of Caleb's diagnosis but I can see how it is such a valuable resource. When you first find out (if you're like me), you want to get all the information you can and work out a plan for action. It is so well put together and contains a wealth of information. Even now that I'm a few years into this journey, I have found new resources and tips in this guide.

If any of you know someone in the early stages of diagnosis, send them the information about he 100 Day Kit. If you don't, file that information away in your brain because odds are---you'll know someone that will go through this soon enough.

I'd like to think that the money we have raised so far goes directly to things like this kit.

I'm taking donations until the walk (May 24th) but will be closing the raffle on April 28th. THANK YOU!
