“It’s amazing to see these kids make these accomplishments and help them from my own experience and even the little things that most people think are little are amazing in this building to us and we celebrate them," said Barb Sabin, a director at GOAL. “I’m kinda blessed she’s working here with us obviously she’s very good at helping people with autism and a good advocate and she works with us so it’s the best of both worlds I think.”

World Autism Day is April 2 and she’s been invited to the United Nations in New York to show what can be done to help those on the Spectrum.
