In the late 1990’s, my little brother was diagnosed with Autism. At that time, my family and I were clueless as to what we were dealing with. Over the years, we tried to absorb all resources and information related to Austism. Our journey with my brother led my family to career paths and related endeavors that we hoped would help families with individuals on the spectrum. I am proud to honor my brother with Team Twinkle, named for his love of “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star”. Join us!
