Micheal’s grandmother, Carol Bueti, gave a detailed account of all the up’s, downs and everyday struggles that the family, which work as a team, experience while raising the sweet young child with autism.

Overall, the meeting was very in-depth. All attendees shared a very inspirational experience as Bueti explained how the hardest part to cope with is seeing her grandson stem off from other children and lack the enjoyment capacity for social experiences. This includes the park, birthday parties, etc.
