Last week we attended the Frisco City Council meeting where our mayor, Maher Maso, read a proclamation recognizing World Autism Awareness Day. The mayor asked Will if he wanted to say anything. Will grabbed the mic, thought for a minute, then said, "Baby car." He's a little obsessed these days with the Toyota Prius.
I recently found out that Frisco ISD has almost 700 students enrolled that are on the autism spectrum. I knew it would be a lot considering the number of young families in Frisco - but I didn't expect the number to be so high. Will's teacher did the math - that actually puts the number at 1 in 86/87 on the autism spectrum. The national average is 1 in 88.
We were so grateful that some of Will's teachers came out to support last Monday - they truly care about Will. And thank you to the mayor and city council for their continued support!
