Making Our Way: Autism

The Dionne Family

Clip | 4m 35s

17-year-old Ben Dionne has made a lot of progress in the years since he was first diagnosed with Autism. Ben is non-verbal, meaning he doesn't have the ability to vocalize his needs. For the non-verbal child with Autism, other means of communication such as signing, or an augmentative communication device is needed to communicate.
