"Navigating Autism: A Mother’s Story" by EAP's Julie Reyes

They say that if you’ve seen one child who has autism, well, you’ve seen one child who has autism. While each child is unique, families with children who have autism share common challenges, goals and dreams – and they overcome obstacles in their own unique way. We are one of those families.

My son, Christian, is among the one of every 54 boys who has been diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). We’re a military family, always moving, adapting and prepared for anything. However, there was no way to prepare for Christian’s autism diagnosis.

Ava's Law: EAP Mom Advocates for Autism Insurance in Georgia

We invite you to meet eight-year-old Ava Bullard and her mother, Anna Bullard. In this video, Ms. Bullard describes her feelings upon learning Ava has autism. When Ava received her diagnosis at age two, Ms. Bullard was told her little girl would never be able to speak – even to say the word “mama.”

“I felt like I didn’t know Ava and Ava didn’t know me,” Ms. Bullard said.

Her search for scientifically proven treatment led Ms. Bullard to Early Autism Project, whose therapists began providing Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy to Ava when she was two years old. Ava’s mother saw improvement within two weeks. Today, Ava is a third-grader in a general education classroom in Lyons, Ga., who no longer requires intensive treatment. She participates in one ABA session a week to practice social skills.

Ms. Bullard is a powerful advocate for families of children who have autism. “Ava’s Law,” which would require insurance companies to pay for “evidence-based treatment” such as ABA is being considered by the Georgia Legislature, which is scheduled to vote on the legislation in January 2014.
