Cathy waited 27 years for her son Tommy to speak again. She was not sure if it would ever happen after he stopped speaking when he turned two and a half years old and was diagnosed with autism. But Cathy never lost hope, especially after taking him to Little City when he was nine years old. She saw the potential for progress at Little City, but more importantly, she heard it.
Kevin was fresh off a volunteer trip to Feed My Starving Children where he packed meals that would be shipped to malnourished children across the globe. He enjoys these volunteer opportunities where he can experience something new and give back to people in need.
It's another busy morning at Larry's House in Little City's Duffey Family Children's Village. The residents are preparing to go to school. And like any family, the level of enthusiasm varies from day to day.
As a supporter of Little City, you know autism can come in many different forms. But how do everyday people view autism? What about the experts? How does this Chicago Blackhawks see it? Check out our man-on-the-street video.
