“Many people ask me what it was like growing up with a brother with classic autism. Well, I tell them, “When I was younger the world was a very different place. Back then, very few people knew about autism and only a handful had any clue on how to treat it.” I guess you could say that my family was fortunate because we were referred to the TEACH center in North Carolina, and the staff diagnosed my brother with classic autism at the age of three. Plato would go to the program three to four times a week and get special training and services. He went to the center for only two years before my family moved to Alabama but we credit the innovative treatments from the TEACCH program for the progress my brother made during the first 10 years of his life.”
