We need to remember that children with autism eventually become adults, leaving many families wondering what direction theyâll take once their children have grown into full on adults. These parents are not alone, Cathy and Jim Gott, a former Dodgerâs pitcher, were stumped as to what would happen to their son Danny who lives on the spectrum, once he was in need of employment opportunities.
Hear about how the Gotts family founded Dannyâs Farm that offers services for both kids and adults on the spectrum. It has become a nurturing, loving place for these individuals. Listen to the first hand accounts from the Gotts and many other families affected by autism who take their children and adult family members to Dannyâs Farm to take advantage of their services.
The Amber alert was established to notify communities of missing children and provide information about the situation in question. If a child with autism goes missing, though, the circumstances may be very different than those of a child without autism.
Children with autism can wander away from their homes or families without understanding the dangers around them. There have been many unnecessary deaths due to children wandering away and getting lost or falling into a body of water.
We need to establish a system for children with autism much like the Amber alert. It would provide the circumstances of the disappearance as well as information about their condition â whether verbal or non-verbal, nicknames, favorite spots, etc.
