  • The Four A's of Autism

    5 GIU 2024 · oin Kristin and Angel Wilson as they discuss her work in the Autism field as an educator and infant and toddler developmental specialist.  The Four A's of Autism are: Awareness, Acceptance, Affirmation and Advocacy. Angel Wilson, M.S., after 15 years in the autism field, she had pretty much done it all. From Therapist, to Developmental Specialist, Supervisor, Trainer, Assessor, Interventionist, she learned and saw a LOT. What she noticed, though, were the concerns coming from families and providers alike; a lot of people knew OF autism, but didn't really know ABOUT autism. This was especially true in minority communities or providers with a large percentage of minority students or clients.​ She decided to answer this call. As this business continues to grow, she hopes you will join her in advocating for autism awareness and acceptance across the board, regardless of color or culture.
