All month long we're sharing the stories of local families dealing with autism to help bring attention to the condition during Autism Awareness Month.
We meet a woman who got a diagnosis for her son more than a decade ago, when there were practically no services available in Laredo to help.
Veronica Orduno knew what autism was. As a teacher, she had read about the condition, and suspected that her son might have it. She spoke with KGNS News anchor Ann Hutyra about her experiences in the hopes they might help others.
For anyone interested, Families For Autism Support and Awareness is a group open to anyone who wants to join.
Their next monthly meeting is on Wednesday, April 9th, from 6:30pm to 8pm at the Lara Academy.
You can also find the group on Facebook.
