Once upon a time there was a little girl named Grace who loved water fountains, outer space, rainbows, and dancing to music from the 70s...
Grace is my now 6-year old daughter with High-Functioning Autism. When she was born, her grandfather named her "Amazing Grace". He has passed away now, but little did he know how simply amazing she would be!
Grace is the inspiration for Sanford Autism Consulting. After embracing her diagnosis and exploring services and resources in our community, I wanted to provide that same support to other parents who were on their own Autism journey.
Please join us on as we laugh, cry, learn, and most of all enjoy our journey with Grace. I hope that you will learn more about how to best support your child, friend, significant other and encourage them to be the best that they can be. Simply Amazing!
