April is Autism Awareness Month where we honor and recognize the millions of children, families and individuals around the world who are impacted by autism.

Dr. Rebecca Landa, Director of the Center for Autism and Related Disorders at the Kennedy Krieger Institute, shares a story about a boy who was diagnosed with autism at Kennedy Krieger as a  toddler and through treatment, education and perseverance is realizing his wishes and living a fulfilling life.
