I founded Hope 4 Autism, Inc February 2010, a few short years after learning my daughter, Sania, was diagnosed with Autism. Sania, an only child, suffers from a severe form of autism. Like many parents caring for a child on the spectrum, I struggled with the diagnosis in turn isolating myself and Sania from the outside world.
After a year of living in this helpless state, I slowly began to accept the condition for what it was. I immediately went looking for groups and resource in my area that would help me and Sani through the cycle of autism. To my surprise, not many services were offered in my area which led me to become active in the community. After advocating and recognizing a strong passion for change with autism, I decided to create Hope 4 Autism.
In addition to Founding Hope 4 Autism, I'm a furniture buyer, interior decorator and fashion designer and owner of Sani Auri, LLC, Carmen Veal Interiors & co-owner of Final Frame Ties. I am blessed to be able to do all the things I love, while making a difference in the world. I hope to coninute inspiring parents of children on the spectrum, but the general community as a whole.
I also own autism blog Hope4autismmom.com where I share (uncensored) milestones and experiences of life with autism.
