Family Dynamics

Grandparents Helping Autistic Grandchildren

Judy Greenberg, like so many others, is a grandmother of an autistic child.  Using the knowledge and experience she has gained from working with her own grandchild, Judy heads GASAK, Gradparent Advocates Supporting Autistic Kids, which is a group of concerned grandparents doing what they can to help their own children to cope with the issues involved with raising an autistic child -- and, of course, like grandparents of all children, they are working together to have their autistic grandchildren lead the best and most productive lives they possibly can.  Autism awareness is important.
 
GASAK meets at the following locations:
