After developing typically for 15 months, Daniel began losing his words and becoming increasingly withdrawn from the world around him. Everything seemed to trigger a meltdown. He was diagnosed with autism at age 2 & 1/2. It has been a long road with many ups and downs, but he is making great progress! He is in his 2nd year of high school, and is taking a modified Regents program. He reads well, is good at math, and has a great sense of humor. He wouldn't be where he is today without the wonderful programs provided by AutismUp,(formerly UNYFEAT). Please consider helping AutismUP continue to help Daniel and other kids like him. Thank you!!
