October is autism awareness month in Canada.
It is estimated that 1 in 66 children and youth has been diagnosed with autism in Canada, yet Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a condition that remains misunderstood by many people.
Teresa Hedley wants to change that. Hedley is an author, advocate, educator, curriculum designer and mother of a son with autism.
Today on Connections, Teresa shares her family’s journey with autism in hopes of educating others.
