This Man and His Son Are Bringing Hope Into The Autism Community

Bill has never thought of his son as having a disability.

Instead, he treats him like a true father, with love and patience. You can immediately see the deep connections between Bill and his son, Chris - who was born with severe autism.

Bill and his son sit down to tell their emotional story, and to challenge the stereotypes surrounding autism, and to also bring a little hope to the community.

"I was pretty much told to put him in an institution," Bill tells us while fighting back tears.

“The thing I’ve learned most over the years is to be a parent first. It changed my life completely. It put me in another direction. I was able to love unconditionally.”
