Imagine, as a parent, not feeling safe when alone with your child because they have severe emotional outbursts. Imagine being confined to your home because these outbursts make you fearful to take your child into the community.

Lily’s Story of Hope

Imagine watching your beautiful two-year old daughter lose interest in the things she loved doing. Imagine her not reacting when you call her name. Imagine if she stopped looking at you or responding to you altogether.

This was the experience of Lily’s parents before they found Hope.
Lily was soon diagnosed with autism. This explained her echolalia (repetitive speech patterns) and aloofness. She would push her fists into her cheeks, pinch, scratch and pull hair. Lily’s family needed help!

These are the questions that plagued JP’s parents as they searched for the help and answers they needed!
