I am Jacob. I have Autism. Everybody knows somebody who has Autism. Every person needs a really great person helping them. A helper is a push in the right direction. Dri (Jacob's nickname for his teacher Adrianna) places a letter board in front of me. A person doesn't learn instantly how to use a letter board. Takes tons of practice. I am happy I learned about Soma. (Soma is a form of therapy at Halo in Austin) Prayers are answered. I owe Soma a kind thanks.

 - Jacob Hammons 

Jacob Hammons was diagnosed with a form of Autism called pervasive developmental disorder on his third birthday, January 13, 2003. The neurologist gave him and his family little hope and told them to plan on a lifetime of care. Jacob and his family literally traveled the United States searching for a cure. After years of therapy, at the age of 13 Jacob has finally found his voice. As you will see, he is a typical teenager with a passion for autism awareness and a great sense of humor.  We look forward to sharing more writings in the future.  Jacob is currently receiving therapy at the Autism Treatment Center Therapy Clinic in Fort Worth.
